Use the Say Thanks to Someone tool

An original feature that can be used to thank friends on Facebook is the native tool of the social network called Say thanks to someone.

It is possible that you have never heard of it and the reason is due to the fact that this functionality is hidden within the social network and could be highlighted by Facebook only on some special occasions (a long-standing friendship , for example or a particular holiday such as Mother’s Day or Father’s Day or Grandparents’ Day). This tool, as it is easy to guess from the name, allows you to choose a person among your Facebook friends and to compose a personalized thank you video, using images and phrases.

If you want to use it to thank your friends on Facebook, the first thing you need to do is connect to this web address https://www.facebook.com/thanks. Then choose the friend for whom you want to make the video by clicking on theirs name and surname. You can also search for the desired person using the search engine that you find next to the wording Look for a friend.

Once you have selected the person of your interest, scroll down the screen and choose the theme of the movie that will be made. Then put the check mark on the items Longtime friends, Friends or Family members and choose the greeting you want to address to the person from the drop-down menu Choose a greeting.

Then locate the photos or videos you want to include in the thank you video by placing a check mark on them. Through the gallery Choose photos and posts you can also upload photos and videos on the spot: to do so, press the button Add Photos. You can include a maximum of 7 elements between photos and videos.

Once you’ve finished customizing your movie, press the button Play to see it before it is published. If you are satisfied with the result, click on the button Share video.

You can also use this feature from smartphones and tablets: just open the browser you use to surf the Internet and go to the specific website of this Facebook feature. Once logged in to the mobile version of the social network, you will be able to use the tool Say thanks to someone in the same way that I have indicated to you in the previous lines.
