A campaign to help fight cyber-bullying on Instagram has gone viral.

Tarte Cosmetics have teamed up with Bystander Revolution to create the #KissandMakeup campaign.

The idea is to spread love and positivity online instead of hate and needless insults, and people are promoting it by taking selfies featuring a lipstick kiss on the back of their hands.

Konbini have cited a YouGov poll to emphasise how big an issue cyber-bullying has become.

According to the poll of 4,700 teens aged between aged 13 to 18, one in five has suffered online abuse.

That reportedly makes cyber-bullying a bigger concern than drug use for the polled generation.
