FBtops WordPress Plugin allows you to create tops/rankings of posts based on number of facebook likes, shares or comments they receive.
You can select specific categories (one, many or all) that will participate in the top and you can use pagination if you want.

The top itself can be done with a shortcode [fbtops] you can put it in a post or in a page.

FBtops is very useful to put the various posts into competition one with each other. The rankings based on facebook likes, shares or comments is a very healthy way to see what really drives interest on your site 🙂
