As it looks to expand its online presence, St. Petersburg College compiled a list of Florida's top 10 state and community colleges, by "like"s on Facebook. Have a look:

10. Hillsborough (8,213)

9. Seminole State (8,816)

8. Valencia (9,290)

7. Santa Fe (9,601)

6. St. Petersburg (9,877)

5. Florida State College at Jacksonville (11,609)

4. Palm Beach (12,217)

3. Tallahassee (13,366)

2. Broward (14,431)

1. State College of Florida (16,775)

Patty Jones, SPC's vice president for human resources and public affairs, noted that some colleges didn't have a Facebook presence.

"Shortly before noon on Friday, we actually surpassed the 10,000 milestone" for Facebook likes, Jones said. "Facebook is the big one."

SPC is also working to grow its visibility on Twitter and LinkedIn, Jones said.
