Redesigned Emoji keyboard now brings diverse emoji in five skin shades

With the new updates to OS X operating system, we can now use diverse emoji coming in five shades. In November we saw Unicode Consortium responding to criticism of apparent ethnic homogeneity of cartoon pictograms used in text messages. The tones are now modeled on the Fitzpatrick scale, a recognised standard used by dermatologists.
