    I've noticed the lately to reach top-posts just likes are not sufficient. I've published an image with very targeted hashtags, pumped with 2000+ likes but it didn't reached the "Top Posts". In the past with just 1100 likes I was always at top.

    Is there anything new or what? Do you guys "pump" also comments or I was just unlucky this time?

    top posts now are custom for every user, it's based on hashtags on pictures you liked
    Try to search for a #guns for example and like a few pictures you will see that your popular page will integrate pictures with the hashtag #guns

    I believe it also factors in what people like your picture.

    If "jon" mostly only likes #smoothie pictures then 1000 likes from guys like jon counts more than 1000 likes from bots who have no pattern in their interests.
