What's the difference between thanks and thank you?

I don't get it.

  • Thank you is more formal (Interview, Meeting, Conferences, Meeting new people, Elders, etc.) Thanks is what you would say to friends o family.

  • Just the connotation of the phrases. Thanks sounds less grateful than thank you to me, but thats probably just me

      It's not just you, I tend to skip thanks because it doesn't sound genuine coming out of my mouth. It's always thank you for me ☺

      Like thanks is fake?

      That's kinda what I assume, like that they feel they have to acknowledge you but are not actually appreciative

  • They're the same but one sounds more casual than the other.

    but sometimes thanks may come off as thanks without a smile online lol
