When I view the articles featured on the home page, it appears that social aspects (comments/likes) are what gets an article featured there. Is that true or are their other criteria involved? Just curious since I have only had one article display there and it happened to be an article of mine with the most comments (5). And all of the articles I see featured have lots of comments.
I am not that big on the social game, I kind of just do my own thing. How important of a role does being social here play in ones success?
