An action with the hands that used to be used solely an expression of agreement or acceptance, but when used as an emoji on social media can now also mean "I'm pleased for you, but don't want to carry on the conversation" - a polite version of "whatever" - a way of saying 'whatever' but pretending that you liked what they said.
A:"did you see my photo of the grand canyon. What an amazing place! You should visit it sometime"
A's friend: <thumbs up emoji>

A gesture that, in Australia, means "Up Yours!" and is likenable to the extended middle finger in America.
I'm from down under, so give this definition a thumbs DOWN if you like it, since the thumbs up is an insult here.

A Hand grenade gesture thrown by hand, thumbs up or thumb up if only using one hand, i.e. the Fonz. A final affirmation for when everything is spot on and knowing that Friendship goes with a bang!
When you look at your hand in the thumbs up gesture side on, if you look closely at the four curled fingers that go into the palm and notice the edge of the knuckles it looks very much like the classic early Hand Grenade known as the pineapple hand grenade. Now looking back at your hand in the thumbs up gesture if you curl over your thumb and imagine its inside the ring that’s joined onto the pin, then move your thumb up as if to remove the pin thumbs up BOOM. A hand gesture thrown by the hand grenade Friendship goes with a bang
