#BBCTrending: Do you live by #YOLO or #YODO?

22 January 2014 Last updated at 12:47 GMT

A popular phrase used to philosophise about life is You Only Live Once, or 'YOLO' as it's known in the world of social media.

Since 2010, the hashtag #YOLO has been used 20 million times on Twitter to demonstrate how people embrace life to the fullest.

#BBCtrending reports on how #YOLO has also inspired a conversation about death online. People have taken the opportunity to express their end of life wishes by sharing the hashtag #YODO, You Only Die Once.
