What do the counts on the Popular Favorites page mean?
The Popular Favorites pages on MetaFilter
and Ask MetaFilter
show posts and questions that have received the most favorites
from members within a specific time period: the last 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, or all time.
While browsing the Popular Favorites page you can see both the total number of favorites and the number of favorites added within the current set time period. Favorite counts are shown as a text link that says something like
[24 favorites (12 in the last 24 hours)]
. That means the post has received 12 favorites in the specified time period and 24 favorites total. If a post only has
listed, that means all favorites were added within the specified time period. Click the link to see the list of all members who added the post as a favorite and when they added it.
