How and When to Use the 💾 Floppy Disk Emoji

  • While talking about your ancient collection of movies, music, or even pictures, you could use 💾. Like, “I have all those memories kept safely 💾 I just don’t know where they are”.
  • The same applies even while referring to anything that’s old but gold, ofc – “Everything in the past is what has made us in the present 💾”.
  • On a common ground of usage, 💾 could be translated into ‘storage space’ for any device. So, if you’re posting/reposting information about a newly launched electronic, 💾 can be used to indicate ‘storage’.
  • You could also use 💾 in the contexts of old-school technology or digital life of the 20th century, and with that perspective comes the idea of the previous generations too. For example, “I’m the only 2000s kid, everyone else in my family is from the ’90s 💾”
  • From a more obvious POV, use 💾 while sharing pictures of floppy disks, art made out of these disks, etc.
