More young people are reaching out to their families after being harassed or taunted online, and it’s helping. At least a little.

That’s according to a poll released Thursday by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV that found incidents of so-called digital abuse are still widely prevalent but somewhat on the decline. The survey also suggests a growing awareness among teenagers and young adults that online meanness is hurting society. There also is as an uptick among those willing to seek help by telling their parents or a sibling.

The findings come a week after two Florida teens were arrested on felony charges for allegedly bullying a 12-year-old girl online who later killed herself.
