Debate: Modern Day Petroglyphs??

Petroglyphs are rock carvings made by incising directly on the rock surface using a stone chisel and a hammerstone, majority of the petroglyphs were carved from about 1300 through the late 1680s. We have found petroglyphs all around the world from Oceania to Africa, from Asia to North and Central America. They are a source for getting an insight into the lives of the ancient civilizations. This is how they used to write and communicate. With the advent of modern technology, we are going back in time and have started communicating in the same way. The emojis and emoticons are taking the place of words. We like to send messages in emojis and with every update of the software new emojis are being introduced.

Do you think we will lose our words and there will a time when the future civilizations will be doing research on our emojis, emoticons, and their meanings?
