Thank you very much for your valuable comments and feedback regarding our research paper. Each of your insights have served to strengthen our manuscript.

Do you find yourself saying thanks a lot on social media? Ever thought WHY you do that?

In this article, I am going to tell you to stop thanking people. Have I gone mad? I'll tell you why...


I've been blogging for over two years now and it's encouraging to see a lot of people sharing my articles. Some of these people share straight from my blog using one of the social networking share buttons, or from my RSS news feed in Feedly or perhaps on the blogging network, Triberr. I am extremely grateful to these people and I do try and respond to as many of the people who share my articles to say thank you.

But why?

Why do I say thank you on Twitter? A strange question, you ask?

No Thanks!

Being encouraging is part of my nature and I value politeness very highly. I always say please and thank you in real life, so surely it's the same on social media?

Well, kind of...

The thing is, sometimes a "thank you" can lose its value in the noise and sheer volume of posts.

Do you find yourself replying, sending a direct message or commenting with the following?

  1. "Thanks for following me. Looking forward to reading your tweets!"
  2. "Thanks for sharing :-)"
  3. "Thanks for the awesome RTs"

All of the above examples are very polite and encouraging, but what do they actually mean? Have you thought about the meaning of your "thank you" messages or are you just doing what everyone else is doing?

Don't get me wrong, I am doing exactly the same- but recently I was made to think about whether all this thanking was doing any good. I have marketing consultant, Mark Schaefer to thank for that. Thanks, Mark... (oops...!)

It was one of Mark's blog posts entitled "Why I Stopped Thanking People on the Social web" that made me stop and think.  Do read it- it will give you an idea of what I am referring to.

In the article, Mark says that the tipping point came when someone tweeted him:

You are too damn polite... Stop thanking people, will you!

Ouch.

Mark then went on to say...

I knew he had a point. I had reached the thank you tipping point. So I stopped.

This saddened me. I hate it that the more popular you become on the social web, the less engaging you can be. Isn’t that ironic? The very characteristic people appreciate is doomed over time. Authentic social media engagement is not scalable.

I think Mark makes an interesting point.  Social media is about creating meaningful content or building meaningful relationships- and that includes replies.

It's also about knowing who is in your core community and knowing why people are sharing your content in the first place.


Translating Thanks

So, coming back to the above example "thank you" messages, let's do a bit of translating. Could it be that the above messages could mean the following?....

  1. "Thanks for following me. Looking forward to reading your tweets!"
    TRANSLATION: This is an automated message because I am too busy to send you a hand-crafted one. I might be interested in reading what you say although to be honest I probably don't have that much time to read any of them. I was hoping to reach 10,000 followers, and I'm almost there. Basically, I have no idea why I am tweeting you to say thank you for following me, but it seems like the polite thing to do....
  2. "Thanks for sharing :-)"
    TRANSLATION: I am genuinely thankful that you shared my article, however, I don't have the time to properly engage with you, but I wanted to say thanks because that's the right thing to do- my mummy/mommy & daddy taught me to be polite.
  3. "Thanks for the awesome RTs"
    TRANSLATION: Thanks for retweeting some of my tweets to your followers. I haven't thought about it, but come to think about it, some of your followers may have seen my tweets in their timelines. That's quite good really and it gives me a bit of exposure. Please do keep on doing it! I don't really talk to you much on Twitter, but I do like the fact that you're doing my marketing for me.

OK, please note that I had my tongue firmly in my cheek with the above, but I hope you got my point!


Taking up the Opportunity

Part of the issue that Mark Schaefer was referring to, was the lack of value of a "thanks for sharing" type of reply. It's not quite meaningless, but once you start sending out dozens of these a day, they are going to lose their value.

How about doing something a little different?

Instead of just thanking them, why not introduce them to someone else they might find interesting? How about reading one of their articles and giving some feedback? You won't necessarily be able to do that with all your replies, but you could create an opportunity and build upon the relationship.

Be Encouraging!

We've missed something though and it is a biggy...

Encouragement.

Most of us like to be encouraged. If we don't get any feedback it can be a bit depressing. Words of Affirmationis one of the 5 Love Languages (read the book if you haven't already). Each of us accepts and give love and attention in different ways, but one that works well on the social web is Words of Affirmation- encouragement.

I love it when someone leaves a comment on my articles, but the truth is that most readers of blogs don't.

Talk to most bloggers out there, and they'll tell you the same- they wish they had more comments. The same goes for Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. It's great when someone replies, mentions us or leaves a comment.

However, which would you prefer- 20 "thank you for your article" one line comments or 5 longer comments where they share their thoughts? We need to be encouraging but also add value to the conversation. That's how it is in real life, so why should it be any different online?


"Thanks" Replacement Ideas List

So what should we do instead? I'm not saying we should never just say thank you, but in most cases, you should always be looking to make your engagement more meaningful.

So here is my "thank you" Replacement List.

  1. Ask them what they think
    Ask them what they thought of one aspect of the article. If your article was a list of tools or services, ask them what their favourite was. They may not have read the article, but your tweet may quickly remedy that!
  2. Let them know what you think
    If they have a website or blog, have a visit and read an article. Reply to let them know you've visited with some thoughts.
  3. Introduce them to someone new
    If you've not engaged with them before, check their profile. If relevant, you could introduce them to someone else in your core community they may find interesting. Being in touch with your community is important.
  4. Share a relevant article
    If relevant, share a similar article that you have written
  5. Ask them to subscribe
    Recommend they subscribe to your blog or email newsletter. Use Twitter Lead Generation Cards
  6. Be funny
    Tell a joke or share something funny- make their day!
  7. Encourage them
    Encourage them by sharing with them something you like or admire about them or a quality you see in them.

Using Commun.it to help you

"That's all very well", you say, "but I don't have enough time!".

I  understand- I have the same issue. However, that's why spending time thanking everyone without a strategy isn't going to help you!

Firstly, make your own "thank you" replacement list and save it somewhere where you can easily access it. In order to make things easier, we are going to use a tool called Commun.it* which is a  Twitter Relationship Management Tool. You can quickly respond to people who have shared your content. Commun.it segments people into influencers, supporters and engaged members. For more information see my Complete Guide on Using Commun.it.

With your "thank you replacement" list to hand, you can quickly go through your pending replies and mentions and actually engage much more meaningfully with the core people in your community. You may discover people who you haven't engaged with before- people who you didn't realise were in your community. This is the power of Commun.it.

The best way is to go through the different feeds in Commun.it- one at a time. However, remember to plan!

I'd recommend using the prioritized feed as well as consider to reply and high-value members. As well as that, make sure you monitor tweets containing links to your blog posts- if you do this you can quickly go through the monitoring feed too.

Here are the feeds in Commun.it:

  • PRIORITIZED FEED (the most important pending mentions and people for you to action)
  • FOLLOWERS (consider to reply, re-engage, to follow, unfollow, new followers & new unfollowers)
  • RELATIONSHIPS (high-value members, influencers, Supporters & engaged members)
  • MONITORING (people tweeting posts containing your keywords or links)
  • LEADS (potential people to follow relating to certain keywords)

What do you think?

So, have I got you thinking? Do you agree or disagree? Do you have a plan or strategy in how you engage with people using social media? I'd love to know. As always, please leave your comment below (even if it is a "thank you for your article!" comment!)

 

May 22, I want you to know how ALL the different ways to say thank you in English so you can express your appreciation in any situation. . You can share your comments, get feedback, and learn from others in the Confident English.

How to thank people in English

We have some very exciting news! We have a hundred thousand subscribers!

What a wonderful way to start the new year!

It’s so exciting and we want to say a big thank you to you all!

Or a hundred thousand thank yous to be precise!

Well, there are a lot of ways to say thank you. In fact, that’s what this video is about.

We’re looking at things we say to thank people today.

And also how to respond to thank you, because that can be tricky too.

Where shall we start?

Let’s have a story.

Hey, it’s looking good in here.

Yes, I’ve been getting the room ready for Kathy’s seminar.

You got all the chairs out.

Yes, I had to find eighteen of them.

And what’s this? Slides?

Yeah, I made a PowerPoint presentation for Kathy.

You’ve been working very hard.

Yep.

You must be tired. Have you had lunch yet?

No, I’ve got to tell Kathy the room’s ready.

I can do that for you. Why don’t you go and take a break? You deserve it.

Well, thank you very much. That’s very nice of you.

You’re welcome.

We saw a very common way to thank someone there.

What’s that? We say the person is nice.

Well, thank you very much. That’s very nice of you.

You’re welcome.

I expect you say something similar to this in your language too.

All over the world we thank people in similar ways. We’ll use different phrases in different languages, but the ideas behind the phrases are often the same. This idea is saying someone is nice.

Or kind or thoughtful or good.

Yes.

That’s very nice of you. That’s very kind of you. That’s very good of you. That’s very thoughtful of you.

I was very thoughtful to you in that story because I was caring for you.

Ah, but the story didn’t end there.

How did Kathy’s presentation go?

Oh very well. How was your lunch?

Great.

Hi!

Oh Kathy, how did you like the PowerPoint slides?

They were excellent.

Oh good.

Thanks for making them, Vicki.

I’m so glad you liked them.

And thanks for getting the room ready. It was great.

My pleasure.

It’s nice to work with someone who’s so helpful and supportive. I really appreciate it.

But I made the PowerPoint slides and I got the room ready.

Yeah, thanks for doing that.

You were mean to me again!

Things aren’t going to change just because we have a hundred thousand subscribers.

I was afraid of that.

OK. Notice Kathy said ‘I really appreciate it’. If you appreciate someone or something, you’re grateful.

We can also say ‘I’m grateful’, but grateful is a more formal word. You might hear it in a formal speech. Or you might see it in writing, like in an email. But it’s less common in spoken English.

Also did you notice this structure? Kathy said it several times.

Thanks for making them Vicki.

I’m so glad you liked them.

And thanks for getting the room ready. It was great.

So after ‘thanks for’ we use a gerund. A gerund is a noun form of a verb. Just add -ing to the verb to form the gerund.

It’s a very common structure.

Thank you for helping me. Thank you for listening Thanks for watching our videos And thanks for subscribing.

Now is there a difference between ‘thanks’ and ‘thank you’?

They mean the same thing. Thanks is a little more informal.

We often say thanks for small things. Like if you give me a dollar, I’ll say ‘thanks’, but if you give me 500 dollars, I’ll say ‘thank you very much’.

In British English we also say ‘cheers’ and it means the same as ‘thanks’. It’s informal and it’s for small things.

We say cheers when we’re drinking and making a toast in American English.

We do that in British English too, but cheers can also mean ‘thanks’ for us. And we can also say ‘ta’.

Ta?

Yes. Sometimes when parents are teaching their children to say thank you, they’ll teach them to say ta instead. Perhaps because it’s easier to say.

Ta. Ta. Ta. Ta. Ta?

OK, let’s look at another situation.

Happy birthday, Jay.

Oh, thank you. Oh, it’s a bow tie. Oh, thank you! I love it.

Oh I’m so glad you like it.

You didn’t like it?

No! But you did two things there that we often do. First you said ‘Oh’, so you expressed surprise and happiness. And then you said you loved it.

It was a great tie!

So if you receive a gift, you can say things like this.

Oh! I love it! Oh wow! It’s perfect! Oh my! It’s beautiful. It’s just what I wanted. It’s exactly what I wanted.

Let’s look at another one.

Happy birthday!

Yes, Happy Birthday!

Thank you. And presents! You didn’t have to get me presents!

You know, you’re right.

That’s how NOT to give someone a present. But did you notice what Kathy said? She said ‘You didn’t have to’.

So she’s saying that it wasn’t necessary to get her presents.

The idea is you didn’t have to do it, but you did it anyway, so you’re very generous.

Generous means you give gifts to help people, or to give them pleasure. If you say someone’s generous it’ a compliment.

And there’s another thing we say that’s similar. ‘You shouldn’t have’.

Oh wow! You’ve made some soup.

Yes.

You shouldn’t have gone to all this trouble for me. Oh and some wine too. Are you having anything?

Often when we use ‘shouldn’t have’ it’s because we’re annoyed or angry.

Yes, like, ‘You shouldn’t have parked there. That’s my spot!’

‘You shouldn’t have eaten the cookies. They were mine’.

But that’s not what I meant there.

You shouldn’t have gone to all this trouble for me.

The idea here is you’re saying I was too generous again.

Yes, it means it wasn’t necessary to do all that work, but you did and I’m grateful. The soups was terrific, by the way.

You’ve bought me a present? You shouldn’t have. You’ve made me a cake? You shouldn’t have.

So you can just say the phrase ‘You shouldn’t have’. You don’t need to complete the sentence.

There’s another thing that can happen when we thank people.

What’s that?

We offer to repay them somehow.

So what would you like to drink?

No, no. I’ll get them.

No, let me.

OK, thanks. I’ll have a gin and tonic. I’ll get the next one.

OK.

So this means I’ll buy the next drinks. Good. You’re offering to repay me.

Yes, the idea here is to pay people back.

Thanks so much for the loan. I’ll pay you back as soon as I can. Thanks for the ride home. Anytime you need a ride, just ask me. Thanks for your help. I owe you one.

‘I owe you one’. That’s an interesting phrase.

Yes. The word ‘one’ here means a favour – so something you do to help someone.

When we do people favours, we help them out.

Help them out – that’s a useful phrase.

Oh damn!

What?

I can’t remember where I saved this document.

Click ‘file’ and ‘save as’ and it’ll show you.

Oh thank you. You really helped me out a lot. This was an important document.

What is it? It’s a recipe for baked peanut butter and popcorn.

Urgh!

‘To help someone out’ is a phrasal verb. Its meaning is very similar ‘to help’.

We can use it when someone is in trouble or in a difficult situation and we help them get out of it.

Thank you! You really helped me out.

Now there’s another way we thank people that I think happens in some languages but not others. Let’s see an example.

Oh, can I give you a hand with that?

Thank you. You’re a star.

Sure. Where would you like it?

Over there.

So I said you’re a star here.

Like a movie star?

Yes. I mean you’re not really a star, but I was pretending you are.

So we say things that aren’t true.

We exaggerate.

OK.

Oh, are you going to the bank?

Yeah, and it’s pouring with rain.

I’ll give you a lift.

Oh thank you. You’re a life saver!

My pleasure.

You exaggerated again. You called me a life saver.

Yes, he didn’t really save my life. He just stopped me from getting wet.

But these are friendly ways to say thank you English. Someone will do us a small favour and we’ll exaggerate and say they’re a hero.

Thank you. You’re my hero! Thanks so much! You’re awesome! Thanks! You’re the best.

Do you say things like this in your language? I know it happens in some languages, but I’m not sure if it happens in all languages.

Well let’s see. Do you exaggerate like this when you’re saying thank you? Write and tell us in the comments.

OK, before we stop, we should look at some different ways to respond if someone says thank you to you.

We’ve seen some examples in this video.

Thank you. You’re a life saver! My pleasure.

My pleasure. So I was saying I was happy to help.

Yes. The idea here is you did it gladly.

My pleasure. Glad to help. Anytime! You’re welcome.

And another thing we sometimes do is say that thanks aren’t necessary.

I got you some water.

Oh thank you very much.

It was no trouble.

It was no trouble. It was nothing. Don’t mention it! Don’t worry about it. No worries. Not at all!

So if you say thank you and I say ‘not at all’ I mean ‘don’t thank me’.

So the idea here is that the thanks are unnecessary. And that’s it! Now you know lots of different ways to thank people in English.

And we have some important thank you’s to say now.

Oh yes.

We want to say thanks to all of you for watching our videos.

We’re thrilled to have hit the 100,000 milestone.

We really appreciate all your views and comments and subs.

Yes, cheers everyone. And many thanks to all the people who have made suggestions and translated transcripts for us.

You’re the best.

Our heroes.

You didn’t have to watch and subscribe but we’re really glad you did.

Bye now.

Bye-bye.
