Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The information displayed in the quick summary area (when you mouse-over your name at the top bar, what is it called?) is showing wrong number of favorites for me.

This is what I am seeing:


But I am positive that I did not add 7 favorite items today or this week. I had added two questions to favorite today, and the rest have been in my favorites before that.

I do not have a way to confirm this with fact as the favorites tab does not provide you with information about when a question was favorited. But I sorted them by "added" and can confirm that the first 7 of them were not added today.

Maybe 7 of your favorites got deleted today? – juergen d Mar 9 '13 at 17:58
@juergend: In that case does it also mean 7 of my favorites got deleted in this week and month? – user154598 Mar 9 '13 at 18:00
Today is in this week and this month. – juergen d Mar 9 '13 at 18:00
@juergend makes sense, is there an option available to see deleted favorite questions? – user154598 Mar 9 '13 at 18:02

You should hover the numbers in the tab.

For me, the title attribute states 13 : 13 new answers or comments on your favorites this month

So the number does not represent the number of favorite questions added but the number of activities on favorite questions.
