You should avoid using acronyms, emojis, memes, GIFs, and all-caps in your work emails if you want to come across as serious, intelligent, trustworthy, and professional to your co-workers, according to recent research from Fundera.
The report was based on data from a survey of 1,000 adults in the United States.
Respondents were asked to rank the appropriateness of various content types in work emails on a 1 (very inappropriate) to 5 (very appropriate) scale.
American adults rated acronyms, emojis, memes, GIFs, and all-caps as generally inappropriate in work emails.
