WHAT THE EMOJIS SAY IN THE C23 LADIES CLUB ‎GROUP: SYMBOLIC SIGNIFIANCE

The proliferation of social networks on the Internet and the growing creation ‎of Facebook accounts have changed the writing techniques of French-‎speaking Algerian Internet users, and particularly women, who add new ‎forms of writing to their comments: pictograms or emojis. The complexity ‎linked to the study of these non-verbal signs exchanged through computer-‎mediated communication channels lies not only in the difficulty of taking ‎into account the production context but also in the adaptation of the ‎appropriate analysis tools. to a type of writing that is out of the ordinary. ‎Are emojis a new language that would replace words? We have attempted, ‎through semiotic analysis, to interpret actual achievements of iconic ‎productions in a Facebook group‎‎.‎

Keywords: Emojis, Facebook, Semiotics, Writing Practices
