When I was manager of a elementary school in the years 1990 to 2005, text messages didn't exist yet. So the majority of communications for the parents or for tne teachers were made oraly or by writing notes.

I have just been graduated from University. So, before I used to send a text message for people instead of leave notes. But now, I work in the office and I start leave notes for people in my office. I think we should send a text message for people who we are not sure them return to the office that day. If I were sure that them return to the office that day, I would leave a note for them. Anyway, leaving a note or sending a text message, the ultimate goal is the recipient knows the information when they're not there. So, you can choose either.

Hi. I'm Yen. I often leave my message by notes or e-mail. When I was in school, I always leave the message for me to remember what things I must do in the day. Besides, I also send a text message to my colleagues to remind them to work and attend the meeting.

Owing to the prospect of electronic products, I always leave messages by texting or sending emails. Nowadays, everyone gets their phones, accompanying by internet, with them all the time rather than brings notes with them. It is very convenient and environment-friendly to do this.

I can leave a message two forms: with a text message or with notes, all depends to who I'm going to leave message and situations. For example, when I want to notify my niece about she must prepare salad for lunch, because I'm going to go out the house, I usually leave her a note in kitchen. But, when I want to advert my sister about a job call, I usually send her a text message.
