Stickers are like labels or tags; we use them to show present status. Stickers represent emotions and show our daily lives’ moods, feelings, and actions. On different social media platforms today, many users have taken to the use of stickers as a means of communication. Someone says, “Hello, good morning, did you sleep well?” and the message’s recipient replies with a sticker that depicts someone sitting up, stretching, and yawning on the bed. You will agree that communication has occurred, and the sender of the initial message got the answer.
