Webpages and Social Media
Cite using webpage/ website style if no other category fits better (journal, blog, etc.). Cite social media only if original content from the site, and do not alter text, emojis, hashtags, or links.
If you are citing an entire website, it is not necessary to include a citation for the website in your reference list. Simply include the name of the site and URL in parenthesis within the text.
The Safe Child website includes practical information for parents on how to help their children cope with bullying (http://safechild.org).
Note: Citations with more than one line of text should have a hanging indent of 1/2 inch or 5 spaces.
