The emoji is taking over social media this week, and it’s causing a lot of confusion.
What does it mean? Here’s the viral trend explained.
What does the red flag mean on Facebook?
Red flags are taking over Facebook as part of the latest viral social media trend.
The trend involves posting something that you think is a ‘red flag’ in somebody.
Just to emphasise that you think it’s a big red flag, people are putting loads of red flag emojis alongside the statement.
So, if you see people posting red flags, they’re simply taking part in the latest social media fad.
What is a ‘red flag’?
If you’re not familiar, ‘red flag’ is a slang term that means a signal of impending danger, or a problem.
The phrase is usually used when talking about a person, highlighting that you should watch out for and be wary of them.
For example, if someone says “I hate Drake,” “I’m not on Twitter” or “Shrek isn’t even a good movie,” these are all things that could be viewed as red flags.
It’s all down to personal opinion though, as one person’s red flag could be totally normal to someone else.
