It is a relatively popular emoji, and is most often used by younger generations, particularly those in their teens and twenties. It is most commonly used on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. It is not a rude emoji, and is often used in a playful or humorous way.
The snowflake emoji was first introduced in Unicode 6.0 in 2010, and was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. It has since become a popular way to express the winter season, or to express a feeling of being cold. It is also used to represent a feeling of being unique or special, as snowflakes are all unique in their own way. It is also sometimes used to represent a feeling of being fragile, or to express a need for protection.
