Facebook takes off new family emojis, however there's something missing


Facebook has rolled out 125 new family emoji, expanding the default yellow skin tone to include light, medium, and darker tones, and more family combinations. Though the rollout enables users to have more options, all of the family members that comprise each emoji still share the same skin tone. That means there’s no representation of interracial families.
The social media site has failed to follow in the footsteps of Microsoft, who last year introduced 52,000 family emojis to its Windows 10 update with different skin tones and interracial families.
