This website transforms any boring old website into an emoji-only link
Now there's a website to make emojis even more ingrained in Internet culture.
Linkmoji is a fun project that does just what its name says: It turns text URLs into emoji links. People just copy whatever link they want into a text box, click a box, and then you have a new emoji-only URL.
It's pretty much the Bitly for emoji.
For example businessinsider.com becomes http://????.ws/????????????????. It's a nice little array, if you ask me.
Don't bother trying to read the emoji for your URL, the selection of emoji is completely random.
Linkmoji was created by a Facebook designer named George Kedenburg III. On Thursday he submitted it to Product Hunt, and then it subsequently blew up. In less five hours the site had nearly 3,000 active visitors.
The project is following a slew of new emoji-related trends. Not only are more emojis being made, it's now insanely easy to type them using a normal computer and companies have even begun launching mini marketing campaigns by registering emoji domains. Emojis are everywhere. Kedenburg's project further democratizes them.
Because most mainstream domains like .com and .org do not allow for links to have non-Western characters that aren't letters and numbers, Linkmoji creates its new URLs using the lesser known Western Somoa domain (.ws), which accepts all characters.
And if this trend continues to go on, more domains may bow down and allow the cutesy symbols as URLs.
