popular groups is easy, in concept. New members, new posts and new photo uploads. Any large combinations of those things will get you on the list. These days large means LARGE. Some of these groups have hundreds of photos and newcomers club gets hundreds of new members.
Featured is a little more difficult. Here is a post from the team in cafemom discussion
The group owner has to shower us with praise and compliments to be considered for the list:) Seriously, we chose the list based on the size and activity level of groups, the length of time since creation, the responsiveness of administrators, and how well they fit into the categories that we chose. If there were duplicates within a small topical area, we just chose the ones that we liked more.
It is very subjective and editorial. If you know of a group that might fit in, you can send it in to us, but no guarantees that it will get added.
