And now the first ever emoji created for a social cause is trying to help prevent it.
The campaign – “I Am A Witness” – behind the emoji is trying to empower teens to speak up when they witness bullying online or in texts. The emoji, which is black and white and shaped like an eye bubble, allows individuals to speak out against bullying and lend support to someone who is being bullied. The emoji can be posted online or sent through a text message.
There are several YouTube videos explaining the “I Am A Witness” campaign and their message.
