Ever wondered what the most used emoji is? Well, the Unicode Consortium, or emoji overlord if you will, has now revealed exactly that.

“The Consortium has been working to assemble information about how frequently various emoji are used and is making that data available to the public,” the company explained on its website.

In revealing the information, Unicode intends to help people who submit new emoji for approval better understand what users prefer.

And it turns out, everyone’s favourite emoji is the laughing-cry face, with the red heart following closely behind.

After love and laughter, the heart eyes, prayer hands, crying face, and flame, all take up spots on Unicode’s top three rankings.
