In a questions page - there are categories like newest, votes etc.

There is also, a tab called FAQ.

What exactly is this? What is the criteria that defines a question to be called an FAQ?

Just Curious.

    $\begingroup$ nobody really knows... there's some algorithm that takes into account the number of votes, number of times it's viewed, number of answers, etc. and produces a "faq score", according to which it is rated. I usually ignore that tab. $\endgroup$ – Lorem Ipsum Jun 9 '12 at 5:28

It's apparently a list of questions that get linked to very often (the tooltip says this).

Also see Grace Note's answer to the same question on MSO.
