It would be really cool if WPSP could detect the presence of the Post Views Counter plugin and make use of the data it collects. That way, one could have an “Order by” setting of “Page Views”, i.e. show the most popular content on the site.
Thank you! This helped me, too. Can I recommend this instruction be added to the WP Show Posts documentation along with a list of meta keys used by popular social share / post likes plugins e.g. Grow (nee Social Pug) uses dpsp_networks_shares_total.
