Photo-sharing service Instagram announced Friday that Thanksgiving was its busiest day yet, with users sharing their family meals at such a rapid clip that more than 10 million photos related to Turkey Day were posted.

Pictures were uploaded at such a furious pace that Instagram surpassed 200 photos a second for a period of several hours in the middle of the day on the West Coast.

“Overall, the day broke all Instagram records as we saw the number of shared photos more than double from the day before, making it our busiest day so far,” the company said in a blog post.
