    Post regarding/about

    I am confused when to use about and regarding in a sentence.

    Is there any meaning difference between these two? Please explain.

    Thanks for your attention regarding this matter.

    I am bringing your attention about this situation.

    Re: regarding/about

    The first sentence is fine. The second is grammatically incorrect.

    "I am concerned about this situation" - I am concerned with regard to this situation

    "I would like to bring this situation to your attention" - I want you to consider this situation seems to be what you intend in your second sentence
