    For instance virsus For example

    How are you?
    I would like to know the difference between 'For instance' and 'For example', and if I can use them interchangeably.

    Thank you

    For me there is no difference. You can use as you wish.

    I do not know!!, I see ' for instance' is more academic or somewhat formal , am I right?

    I agree with Harry. I don't see a difference.
