Freedom of speech has brought problems to those who wanted to vocalize their feelings about their jobs. People who have vented about there boss or other employees on social media have gotten fired as a result. Can Social Media be a problem or a benefit?

Social Media is a great tool to make friends, do business, and travel the world. But, it can be a curse if not used properly, cause there is always someone watching.
