How to Take Notes During a Meeting


Nothing beats the traditional method of notetaking. Digital methods can be very useful, but they are barely effective. But taking notes by hand is an art in itself. Doing things traditionally can be good for the mental health in a long run, and hand-written notes can also prove to be the greatest of teachers.

There is a slight advantage of having a limitation of time when taking notes by hand. It may seem like being able to respond fast would be challenging and it is, but the good thing is that it enables you to write down only what is important. With digital typing, you can be fast enough to write down the speaker's presentation word-to-word, which can make it tough to look back to and make out, after the meeting is long over.

Facebook is making its payment processes easier and simpler for both Facebook and Instagram users to enhance their purchase experience based on posts and ads on all the Facebook apps. For this purpose, the social media company is introducing a new Accounts Centre option, which it will roll out for testing this week. 


 

The AccountCentre will serve as a central point where users can connect their Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram accounts, which will save them from the hassle of separately logging in to each of their accounts when making purchases. 

 



There will be three types of account linking options available in the Accounts Centre: Story and Post Sharing, Facebook Pay Info, and Logging in Across Accounts.  


 

The Story and Post Sharing Option will allow users to cross-share their Stories across the apps. With Facebook Pay Info, users can authorize their payments via their linked Facebook Pay details from the main Facebook account. And lastly, by choosing to log in across accounts, users can easily log in to a separate account from Facebook, without having to re-enter the log-in details.
