    Thank you for posting this or that?

    Hello, I would like to ask - What is the difference between:
    Thank you for posting this or that?

    I am talking about situation when you see a post for example on Facebook and you want to thank.
    What is the meaning of saying : Thank you for posting this
    and Thank you for posting that

    Thanks.

    I see no difference in that context.

    If you post something that uses the first post as its subject, you use that: "That is a thoughtful post."
    I am not a teacher.

    Time might be a factor- the older the post, the more likely it is that I would use that. In a recent post, I see no difference.

    Much of the time, you'll see simply "Thanks for posting."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
