The newest and full voting member of the Unicode Consortium is Facebook. As you probably know, Unicode is responsible for the constancy of the standard library of characters that you can enter and read by practically all the devices you use. This includes not only text characters, but the entire standard set of emoji. Although they appear different under each platform meanings and their codes are fully standardized, which ensures that the person on the other side will see what you send.

Membership in the Unicode Consortium is worth 18 thousand dollars a year. The core members before Facebook are Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo and Adobe, but recently we see smaller companies, including the SwiftKey. So far, however, it has no right to vote.

Facebook has more significant role in setting of modern web standards and entry into consortium was expected long ago.
