Campaign group V-Hab.com has released an online button designed to replace negative words with more positive ones.
The VQ-Hab de-troller, designed by V Energy, is a plugin that can be downloaded on the Chrome or Safari browser and when activated it scans website for abusive comments.
The browser, which works with YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, uses a database of negative and positive words to replace negative language including swear words with positive words.
The release was created in response to a Twitter row after magazine GQ ran an article on One Direction. Fans bombarded Twitter with abusive messages after the magazine article discussed rumours over the band members’ personal lives.
