SQL is well known battle tested for many things. However, if you have a specific project which requires more dynamic approach regarding data or if you prototype, MongoDB offeres more at least for now. Many cases are that you need embedded objest or arrays inside your data and not relationships. Now my case for using it is GeoJSON data. PostgreSQL has a lot to offer but Mongo gave me fire and forget mode which just works. And I do queries where I postion users inside buildings represented as GeoJSON. Gotta say its fast. I still preffer PostgreSQL for users and such.
