All of us have a few favorite emojis that we use in our conversations and define us in a weird and strange way. But, do you know, there is a special day for emojis?

Well, on July 17, we celebrate World Emoji Day and people celebrate the day by exchanging different emojis. It turns out World Emoji Day wasn’t ‘all that happy’ for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. To celebrate World Emoji Day, Mark Zuckerberg shared a post on his official account with a graph showing top 10 Nations that use emojis.

Here’s the post:

As per Facebook’s data, the laughing face emoji is the most-used emoji in the world.

While USA, Brazil, Mexico, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Thailand and Indonesia were amongst the countries that use emojis most. Zuckerberg left India out of the chart. Yes, a country which has around 1.3 billion people and the highest number of Facebook users the world over and the Facebook honcho does not take into consideration the emoji of choice of Indian people.

India was conspicuous in its absence from this list, something that Indians were quick to point out. Mark’s post couldn’t please Indians as India’s name wasn’t in his graph. Soon, his post got flooded with comments asking him why he hadn’t included India in the graph? According to the data, almost 1 billion people use Facebook in India and it disappointed Indians when the graph didn’t have India’s name in it.

Facebook users also pointed out that not a single country from the entire continent of Africa had made it to the list. However, as The Verge points out, there is no numbered data to accompany the chart, so it’s impossible to tell how much these emoji were used or by what metric this data was even measured.
