Emojis are the tiny cute colorful icons which are used to express our feelings and emotions in easy way. We can use those emojis along with text in Social Networking like Facebook. We can easily use Emoji in our Facebook status along with text, but while talking about the comments section it is quite difficult. Instead of Emoji there is an option for sticker which is bigger in size compare to Emoji and we can’t use the sticker along with text in the text field of the comments section. Scroll down to explore how to use Emoji in Facebook when you are in Desktop or Laptop.
  1. Alternate Method
  2. Using Windows 10
  3. Using Windows 8 and 8.1
  4. Using Windows 7

  1. Alternate Method

Alternatively, you can copy and paste the Emoji whatever you like from the websites like www.emojicool.com or getemoji.com. If you want to copy multiple Emojis at the same time then emojicool is best for you. You can copy all selected Emojis at the same time, but if you want to copy one by one then you need to clear the copied box at the right side of the web browser in emojicool website. You can also use getemoji to copy multiple emojis at the same time, but you need to press control (Ctrl) key while selecting an emoji. Browser like Google Chrome support color emoji only in Windows 10 for lower version you can use browsers like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, which supports color emoji in lower version and as well as in Windows 10.

  1. Using Windows 10

Windows 10 has a built-in touch keyboard that supports color emojis and some skin tones. We need to enable the touch keyboard in windows 10 to use emojis. Remember touch keyboard is different from the On-Screen Keyboard.

1: Enable the Touch Keyboard
If you see the keyboard icon within your taskbar’s notification area, then it has already enabled. If not, then just right click on your taskbar and select “Show touch keyboard button”. This will enable the new keyboard icon within your taskbar’s notification area.

  1. Using Windows 8 and 8.1

Windows 8.1 support color emoji, but it does not support skin tone and Windows 8 neither support color emoji, nor support skin tone as seen in Windows 10. It doesn’t matter whether your keyboard shows color emoji or not because Facebook supports color emoji. It means when you post the black and white emoji in the Facebook comments section or in the status it will automatically change into color emojis. Using the touch keyboard in Windows 8 is similar to the touch keyboard of the Windows 10 but there is quite change how you enable the touch keyboard. In order to enable touch keyboard in Windows 8 just right click on taskbar and go to toolbars and select Touch Keyboard.

  1. Using Windows 7

Windows 7 has not built-in touch keyboard. So Windows 7 requires the use of copy and paste method which I have mentioned above in the Alternate method.

So what are you waiting for? Login to your Facebook account and add some emoji in your Facebook comments section to express your feelings and emotion with your family or friends.
