Everyone VS Everybody difference

Post by Frencharo » Mon Apr 27, 2020 8:03 pm

Hi eveyone/everybody

I heard an american saying « Hi Everyone » rather than  « everybody » to salute a Group of persons.

Could you please tell me why is it correct and what the difference between everybody and everyone in that case ?

Thanks in advance,

No difference. These two pronouns mean the same thing (every person). :ok:

Everyone is one word, as is everybody.

Everyone is conceivably slightly less formal because it's one less syllable than everybody, and therefore easier/quicker to say.
