Hey guys,

the context is about the influence of social networks on pupils' behaviour at school ... what I'd like to know is whether I need to use an extra noun at the end of my sentence to make it understandable; should I go with "social networks are responsible for the increase in bullying" or "for the increase in bullying figures / cases etc. ..." Or are both sentences fine?

Cheers!

    "the increase in bullying" - bullying is a noun
    "for the increase in bullying figures / cases - bullying is adjectival.

    Either is good but you might consider,
    "for the increase in the bullying figures" or "for the increase in the number of cases of bullying."
