    Your sentence sounds strange.

    What are their situations? (better)

    NOT A TEACHER.

    "thanks" is casual.

    "Thank you." is much more formal.

    They mean the same.
    "Thank you" means "I thank you".
    "Thanks" means "I give you my thanks."
    In that respect there's no difference.

    "Thank you" is more formal than "thanks".
    In a situation like this [forum], you could write "Thank you for your reply" or "Thanks for your reply".
    Broadly, you could use this context as a guide. Anything more formal, especially in writing, use "Thank you".
