Posting your emotional disappointments are not always the right thing to do no matter how disappointing it is. The main reason is that your post might contain insensitive remarks that might cause a problem. Jhenny's case might cost her her job. This is because her behavior by posting insensitive remarks could violate laws and policies at her own work. This is especially if the post falls under discriminatory policies that are against the law. Jhenny should start to think twice before posting something on Facebook.
Insensitive remarks are now regulated in the United States. If an institution caught one of their employees who made insensitive remarks over their personal social media account, they always review it. If they found out that there is something wrong with their employee's remarks towards other employees, group, or organization, an investigation will immediately take place. If there are irregularities that are identified, the person responsible for that post will be at risk for apprehension.
This case clearly reminds everybody that we should always be cautious when posting something online. The main reason is that once you are navigating the internet, you are not always alone. There are a group of individuals who are always monitoring your account.
