Contractions are great, when used in moderation. They shorten sentences. Less
is more. Visually, users can get through your stuff more quickly! Plus, they
give your writing a bit more approachable of a style/tone.

Also, I agree you should not use them when they reflect a future tense, like
"You'll".
