“Some aspects of cyberbullying are nothing new for today’s teenagers. One study found that the content of cyberbullying incidents in 91% of cases related to relationship issues, such as break-ups, envy, intolerance, and ganging up.3 These are all just typical adolescent tensions- the difference lies in that they are playing out in a far more dangerous environment. Compared to the traditional bullying of the playground or the times of Flashman, the online environment is a place where bullying has instant, widespread, and permanent effects- and a place where a bully can attack their victim 24 hours a day. Because there is the possibility for the abuse to be spread by others and to continue online and because bullies may be able to maintain a higher degree of anonymity than in face-to-face encounters, there is concern that the intensity of cyberbullying is greater than that of traditional bullying.”

The 8th edition of MLA has resulted in changes to the citation format. Correcting the citations on our website will take some time. Until then, please reference the guidelines below to correct the citation format. You will still be using the information provided here, but you may need to adjust the format for MLA 8.

Author, A. Title of Source. Publisher, Date, URL. Accessed, 1 Jan 2050.
"Web." removed
  • Medium of publication does not need to be stated if obvious.
  • Listing the "name of the site" is not necessary if it is the same as the name of the publisher.
