Proper Facepalm emoji coming soon - plus 70 more

The Facepalm. It's a hugely significant step forward in the realm of human communication, instantly indicating levels of frustration and personal pain related to someone doing something utterly and totally stupid.

Captain Jean Luc Picard probably does it best...

But maybe you don't always want someone as amazing as Patrick Stewart delivering the palm to face. Thankfully you'll soon be covered by a unique emoji.

An update to Unicode is coming on the 21st of June, with version 9.0 adding 72 new emoji which will bump up the character set available to users. Unicode is a global standard for characters used in the computing industry, ensuring that everyone is using the same systems to communicate - so you don't get broken symbols you can't see.

The good folks at Emojipedia have put together an image of how the new emoji might look on an iOS system. And Missy Facepalm is right at the top.
