This week we have yet another lesson of how “speaking one’s mind” on social media can hamper or sideline a career, especially in public relations. We all have opinions, and we all want free space to express those opinions. Social media can lull us into a false sense of security, but the fact remains, social media is a PUBLIC forum and, thus, the public will see our private thoughts… and those thoughts will be carved in stone forever, even if the ideas expressed were a momentary bout with hubris or exaggeration.
