This boomer made millions during the dotcom bubble and now he's investing in emoji domains he believes will become really popular soon, For instance the burger emoji domain could be valuable to Burger King, or the coffee emoji to Starbucks. Some big companies have invested in emoji domains already like Budweiser (the heart and beer emoji forwards to Budweiser.com) and Sony Pictures (the smiling blush emoji plus clapperboard emoji). What are your thoughts?

Lack of standardization for emojis makes this a dumb idea.

It's simply a bad business decision to make your website unreachable to anyone who doesn't have both a smartphone and a keyboard with a particular emoji set. There is no profitability in this.

Boomer bullshit which was (not so) interesting in 2012 or so. Was only working on .ws domains, Coca Cola bought some. But for real, where is the use case? I would rather register 10 new fancy startup-name .com's kek

>> No.11308827

That's why companies are for now using them to forward to their ".com" website. But in time to come emojis will become more and more widespread and accessible to devices.

This will not be anything like the dot com boom you silly faggot

Emojis are not universally supported. My desktop doesn't have emojis.

Do you not speak English as a first language? I know they’re not universally supported today that’s why I said NOT UNIVERSALLY SUPPORTED TODAY

so riddle me this, faggot: how are Android (and all of the different phone manufacturers) and iPhone posters supposed to all navigate to the same URL?

I misread, no need to be rude. Why are getting so you so angry over such a trivial topic? My point still stands that there is no standard, and it would be almost impossible to enforce one since it would exist at the app level.

Even though he struck gold with generic domain names in the 90's, I think this is a gross misunderstanding of why zoomers like emoji names.

This is like applying boomer logic to a zoomer phenomenon. I don't think it's a very good idea at all.

"hamburger" dot WS? maybe if I could just put the hamburger into the search bar on my phone and it automatically goes to the website or something. If it's the top result when you punch in the emojis I guess I could see it working.

>> No.11308994

Emojis are Unicode standard brainlet

>> No.11309000

There's no standard for how they should be represented brainlet. Just go through all the different emoji sets on your phone and imagine your boomer mother trying to figure out which ones are equivalent without a reference.

That would explain why he thinks that domain names are valuable, because he made his money back in the day when people would try visiting shit like "videogames.com." Discoverability and search engine placement is king, not stupid one-character domains. People care less and less about actual domains; think about it: how many times have you seen people type "facebook" into the search bar instead of just going to "facebook.com"?
