All images © their respective authors.

Note: When a post contains multiple images, Facebook maintains separate counts of likes for the post and for each of the images in the post.

If you imbed an image or an album from another source on facebook such as your own account, this won’t count towards the WPS “most liked” competition as likes may have come from outside WPS .

We calculate the score for such a post by combining the list of members who liked the post with the name of those who liked any of the images and then eliminating duplicates. This gives the number of separate members who liked the post and/or one of its images. We use the COUNTA(UNIQUE()) spreadsheet formula.
