In the Uber Eats network, a search for food by emoji has appeared
The teaching staff in American universities is sounding the alarm – since 2017, there has been an increasing maladaptation not only among students, but also graduate students. Young people, including programmers with diplomas, no longer know how and do not want to use file systems. It’s easier for them to make a query in a search engine, and now this method is reaching a new level – you can forget about words and tags, and search for food simply by emoji emojis.
If the previous generation of users worked mainly with physical data carriers, then young people are used to cloud services. In principle, they are not interested in which file is where, what information is stored where – the search is carried out automatically. In extreme cases, tags come to the rescue, and a new service from the Uber Eats delivery service simply expands their list with emojis.
Everything is so simple that you can safely use the option, even if you don’t know a word in the language of the country in which you are hungry. The main thing to remember is how the smiley face of a sandwich differs from the smiley face of a drink – we enter an emoji into the search bar and get a map of the area in response, where the points of sale of this food are shown. It is also convenient because you can immediately assess whether it is profitable to go a few blocks for a favorite dish, or it is easier to buy a donut right around the corner.
