Use your system's emoji font instead of Font Awesome's glyphs.
Font Awesome contains many glyphs, but it's hard to know just what they convey. They also aren't very useful in a text-only environment.
Enter fontawesome2emoji.css, a drop-in replacement for Font Awesome which makes the standard Font Awesome classes create unicode Emoji glyphs instead of private use area characters from a specific font.
This can save bandwidth, and be used in user styles extensions to show the icons which you might have blocked for privacy reasons.
