Millions of people use Facebook every day to connect with the people and things that matter to them most. Your friends are at the core of your Facebook experience, and we are always looking for new ways to help you celebrate those friendships.

Today we’re excited to announce Say Thanks, an experience that lets you create personalized video cards for your friends on Facebook.

Share a Say Thanks video with a close friend, your significant other, a relative, a coworker, an old friend – or anyone else in your life who you’d like to celebrate. There is no limit to how many personalized videos you can create and share.

Here’s how it works:

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.

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

Update as of December 17: Over 200 million Say Thanks videos have been created since the feature became available. At its peak, 3.3 million Say Thanks videos were created per hour. Brazil is the country where people have created the most videos, with some people sending numerous videos to their friends. The US and Mexico have the second and third highest rates of Say Thanks videos.
