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

Ding! Hello, new feature! I just noticed a new "Frequently Asked" section on the main page. I'm guessing it's a test of a new feature, like the recent Linked Questions.

Seems cool so far. But what is it populated with? Common dupes? Topics the viewing user asks about a lot? Topics the viewing user searches for a lot? For what it's worth, I'm getting a link to the [faq] tag underneath it.
