Re: "You are Welcome" not frequently used in English ?

Juan says to Carlos "Gracias" (for any reason, as a way to be thanksful toward Carlos)

Carlos says back "De nada" (inmediately after the "Gracias" said by Juan)

P.S. I mean "De nada" seen to be used with more frequency than "You are welcome"
