i normally leave massege my colleagues and friends but sometimes i call them if i need them urgendly....actaully when i participate meeting with my boss or clients in this situation take some notes bxz very important...

I used to send texts notes when I was a teen, to a girl I used to like a lot. Now, she´s married (not with me) and I don´t use to send text notes but whattsap text messages, email messages and phone messages.

I always send e-mails or write text messages on social networks to my colleagues

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 actually I send text using my cell phone.
I feel it's more practical than others.

sometimes I leave a text message or notes massage.

I'm send text messages for people

When I leave my house, I usually write a note to my wife and tell her where did I go.

Actually if I am in work I send emails and send voice messages through the what is up if I am busy . and if the issue is not related to work , i use the what is up , Facebook and so on .

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.
