Say Thanks Through Facebook Video

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Facebook has yet released another feature for its users to express their gratitude to their families and friends. Introducing, Say Thanks, an application that lets you create personalized video cards for your friends on Facebook.

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada.

Facebook passes 1.23 billion monthly active users, 945 million mobile users, and 757 million daily users. As part of the financial results for its fourth quarter, Facebook today announced a number of new milestones. The social network has now passed 1.23 billion monthly active users.

Here's how it works:

To create a Say Thanks video, visit Once you choose a friend, Facebook will generate a preview of the video.

You’ll have the ability to select from three different themes that are available. For the Old Friends theme, you get to choose 15 photos, Friends theme is 7 photos, and Family theme can be done with 10 photos.

You can choose a greeting after.

Then, choose the photos and/or posts that represent your friendship. You can choose from the photos that are automatically selected by Facebook or upload your own photos.

When you’re satisfied with the video, click “Share” — you will have the option of writing a personalized message before posting. The video will post on your Timeline and your friend will be tagged, so it will show up on their Timeline as well.

Here's are some sample videos:

My rating:

A cool idea, we would not deny that, but it would be better if we can actually decide what we want to say, or what we want to thank about. The music is good, it sets a mood to both viewers who are watching it. Indeed, it is a good and easy way of saying thanks to your family and friends.

Say Thanks has been rolled out globally since November 12 on both desktop and mobile in English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.

  3. I've been seeing a lot of this in my Facebook feed lately. Maybe I should give it a try too :)

  4. I received a Thank You video, and I must agree that while the idea is cool, the execution needs improvement. Like you, I wish I could choose the words, too!
