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

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.
