We use Font Awesome for my project at work, for symbols embedded in text
which have no reason and no need to be interchanged, converted to other
character sets, or indexed in search engines.
Font Awesome also includes some symbols that, we think, won't ever be
Unicode emoji, such as the Android, Apple, Bluetooth, and Windows logos.
