|Branded Stickers are the New Branded Emoji Keyboards
Prepare yourself: Brands may have reached peak emoji, but they’re just about getting started on stickers.
FOMO-infected marketers see audiences ballooning on messaging apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Line and others.

But emoji keyboards were never anything more than another dubious marketing tactic, making for a good press release and adding to brands’ “hip” credentials, but not much more.
