You can now search Yelp for emojis
Yeah, we tried it.
You can now search the online review site Yelp using emojis -- those little cartoon-ish characters you can create with a certain set of keystrokes.
So...you search on a pair of scissors, you get listings for hair salons. A high heel gets you shoe stores. You get the picture(s).
I don't even want to search on a smiley face or a wink. Pretty sure the Internet has taken things one step too far.
We, of course, had to try it:
Some results were just... the usual for Yelp.
Others were pretty literal.
But seriously: Could this be a useful search tool?
