The world’s largest social media network broke a new record this week.

One billion people logged on to Facebook in one day. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook co-founder and chief executive, announced the news on his Facebook account Thursday:

We just passed an important milestone. For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day.

On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family.

When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different. This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole world.

The world population currently stands at about 7.27 billion people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Zuckerberg’s figure of 1 billion people does not include anyone in China, however, USA Today reports. Facebook is banned in the world’s most populous country.

On average, 968 million people use Facebook per day, and about 1.5 billion people log on to their Facebook accounts at least once a month, according to USA Today. By comparison, 316 million people log on at least once a month to the social media network Twitter.
