“This past year was clearly a breakout-year for emoji-based domains within the .FM name space, with Emoji Domains representing nearly 10% of all New Domain registrations in 2020,” remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media, Inc. “This past summer’s ‘Eye Mouth Eye’ emoji meme, created by a diverse group of young entrepreneurs and techies to raise money for racial justice organizations, was one of the highest profiled and most trafficked Emoji Domains to date and went on to raise over $200,000 for three charities that support people of color and the LGBTQ community. With adoption continuing to climb, Emoji Branding is the next frontier in Creative Digital Marketing, and we look forward to the continued growth and originality of dotFM clients in benefiting from this expansion.”
