  • What’s the FAQ tab? This seems to be a feature that was removed from SE. – Jan Jan 2 '17 at 22:01
  • @Jan FAQ is now called the help center. – choster Jan 3 '17 at 16:12

It's done automatically based on votes and views and links between questions, and possibly other factors.

The question has been asked before on meta.SO and the exact formula is never revealed.
