You can cite from Wikipedia. However, you have to keep in mind that such online wikis are put together by numerous people that you can't guarantee the verifiability or expertise of the entries. Therefore, many instructors will not accept Wikipedia as a valid source for information on academic papers. Whereas, Wikipedia's Good Articles and Featured Articles are considered more credible than those not labeled as such, and thus can be used and cited for research purposes.
