Facebook gets into greeting cards with ‘Say Thanks’ video cards

12 Nov 2014

Social network Facebook has created a new ‘Say Thanks’ experience that lets users create personalised video cards for friends.

To create a Say Thanks video go to facebook.com/thanks, select a friend and Facebook will generate a preview of the video.

Users can select a different theme and edit photos and posts that represent your friendship and once they’re happy with the end result click ‘Share.’

“Share a Say Thanks video with a close friend, your significant other, a relative, a co-worker, an old friend – or anyone else in your life who you’d like to celebrate,” explained Cameron Ewing, design manager at Facebook.

“There is no limit to how many personalized videos you can create and share.”

Facebook said that Say Thanks will be rolling out globally on both desktop and mobile in English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.
