Why are the popular posts in the front page not properly ordered?

I just noticed on the frontpage. On today's popular posts, the list is not properly ordered by number of likes. Is this a bug on this site?

I have attached a screencapture. You will see the order is not correct. The order is 3 - 1 - 3.

Thank you for asking question. What you noticed is actually a feature. The list is ordered first by posts the system determined you like. So if you click like the post on the 3rd list, that will end up with 4 likes and it will actually jump to the first spot in your point of view.

Ranking is different per user since not all users have the same interests. And the system tracks the user interests based on the posts that user likes.

So the whole idea of what the system is trying to accomplish is to show the user posts that are most interesting based on the user activity.
