When working on a complex document, it’s common to have each chapter or section start on a new page. Instead of manually inserting Page Breaks in Word, I prefer to create them automatically as soon as I assign a Style to my section title.
That way, there’s never any confusion as to where a page ends. The Page Breaks don’t move around on me. And my formatted text never loses its Style as I add and remove spacing around it.
To automate my Page Breaks, I like to add them right inside my Heading Style definition!

It’s a good idea to cull through your own list, since Facebook tells us that it shares “your basic info” with games, applications, and websites that you connect with on the social media platform.
Here are some pros and cons to consider when you decide which apps, site connections, and plugins you should keep.
