Expressing gratitude is a wonderful thing, and Facebook Wednesday introduced a way for users to do just that by creating personalized video cards for their friends and sharing them, Say Thanks.Design manager Cameron Ewing and engineering manager Nick Kwiatek said in a Newsroom post that Say Thanks is being rolled out globally Wednesday, on both desktop and mobile, in the following languages: English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.
Here’s how it works, according to Ewing and Kwiatek:
To create a Say Thanks video, visit facebook.com/thanks. Once you choose a friend, Facebook will generate a preview of the video. You’ll have the ability to select a different theme and edit photos and posts that represent your friendship.
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.
