I once leave a note to my mom , and the note get lost , and it was really important , since then I stopped leaving notes on the table or on the fridge , because it may fly and get lost , the best way to leave notes or ask about anything is by using social media , that’s what i daily use to leave notes.

Usually, I send messages to my co-workers and friends when I want to let them know about something, or ask any information that I need. I think the most appropriate manner is to send messages in the phone or other apps like Viber or What's app. Sometimes notes can be lost, or fly in the office and the person won't be able to get your messages

I rarely leave notes. They may get lost on the table, especially on the cluttered one. I think text messages are more trusted. Of course, if it's urgent I will try to get someone on the phone and don't forget about e-mails. They have a useful option - reminding ))

Firstly, I would prefer to send a text or email and then give a call to remember the person to see the messages

when i can't call someone or in the non-urgent cases, i usually sent text massage on zalo or facebook. I almost don't leave someone a note because i am afraid that they will be lost.

I would rather leave notes than send text messages. Particularly for work.

I don't think that I've written note ....basically I prefer to text or call......according to me it's better way to inform....as in this time as we wake up first we take a glance on our phones so it's better to text
