The app Bitmoji creates a personalized emoji avatar you can easily paste into text messages. The app walks you through the steps to build an emoji avatar that looks just like you and then you can customize its clothes based on your mood (mine currently is wearing a Wonder Woman outfit). I find that sending these personalized emoticons to my friends is more fun (and emotionally satisfying) than distracting myself by browsing Facebook. Plus, it reminds me a little of playing with paper dolls as a child.
