Discussion on: PostgreSQL vs MongoDB

When PostgreSQL came up with the JSON features, I remember reading examples and always seeing 'some-json-formatted-data'::JSON, so I assumed JSON data is given to / received from PostgreSQL in a string. Even the comments field in your example a few comments back (the one with the 3 comments of user 10) has the JSON data in strings.

If that isn't the case, my bad, I didn't know PostgreSQL had progressed this far, I thought it was still using strings to encapsulate/represent JSON data contained in cells.
