Parents are being warned about young girls going head-to-head in cyber beauty contests on the photo sharing app Instagram.

Users simply vote for the girl they think is the best looking,

The winner gets to call herself the prettiest, while the losers get a big red "X" over their faces.

Instagram issued a statement saying parents should monitor their kids online.

In the meantime, the pageants will go on.
