"Comunicacio´n mediada por ordenador" is a study on the emergence of emojis and memes as recognized iconographies in modern modes of communication. The work examines how written expression extends and democratizes; diverse forms of expression emerge, while others mutate or die based on the medium or platform in question, from social networks to blogs. The authors also highlight the fact that understanding these new codes is necessary not only to interact on the Internet, but also to recognize the impact the Internet has on language in general.
