Facebook wants your face to be an emoji.
That's according to a recent patent it was awarded which outlines a system for custom emojis.
When a user types a message in Facebook, software will detect when an emoji has been entered. It could even be a smiley face typed by a user like this ":)".
Facebook's software will detect the expression portrayed by the emoticon, then scour a user's pictures to find an appropriate image to replace the emoji with in the message.
