What πŸ€— Means

The "hugging face" emoji typically represents positive sentiments such as:

  • Hugging
  • Affection
  • Comfort
  • Gratitude
  • Friendliness
  • Praise
  • Admiration
  • Joy

However, like all emojis, individuals can use them in ways that don't exactly translate to the originally intended meaning. For example, πŸ€— is often used as a form of "jazz hands" or other ultra-excited action. In general, though, the hugging emoji is a loving, friendly and caring symbol that can be used with almost anyone you might text.
