What Does Thumbs Up Mean?

Kevin Willett says that business and emoji’s do not mix.

Last week I sent a message to a person on social media asking them if they were interested in attending networking events. He responded with a thumbs up emoji, which of course I thought meant that he was interested. When I later sent him further information, he responded by saying he was not interested. I encourage you to not respond to a message with a thumbs up or a ‘K’ or any other emoji’s. If you are busy, please wait until you have time to respond properly to make sure you are communicating the right message. Follow the same advice I give to my 3 year old nephew and use your words.
