  3. Number of items - How many Tag Trends will the module show.

NOTE
If you select Top percent from the "Choose statistics" option then the number of items is doubled. That happens because the module with that option will show you the top Tag Trends moving up and the top Tag Trends moving down. If there aren't any Tag Trends moving up/down then the module will show only the items with a movment(only up or only down) based on the exact items number difined by you.(eg if the items number is set to '5' then the module will show top '5' moving up and top '5' moving down)

If you select Top overall from the "Choose statistics" option then the module will show the top Tag Trends sortetd with a descending order based on the value. The number of Tag Trends that will be shown is the exact number you set in the "Number of items" option.
