We're talking gender neutral, all races, girl power emojis and even A DANCING TENNIS BALL PEOPLE. 

Speaking about the new launch, Facebook explained: "Emojis have changed the way we talk to each other - whether it's a smiley face to show you're happy, a thumbs up, or a pizza when hungry, emojis are a fun, easy way to express yourself when words just aren't enough — and people love them! In fact, nearly 10% of mobile sends in Messenger include emojis.

"However, not all platforms have kept up with emoji standards as they've evolved - which means sometimes the emoji you wanted to send wasn't the one that showed up. Nor are they living up to the gender and skin tone diversity that we see in our world everyday."

These are SUPER cool - and if you need us, we'll be trying them out all day.

How about you lot? Thoughts? Discuss with us @Sugarscape, yo.
