On Thursday, March 22, we tackled the tough topic on Higher Ed Live of whether the current deployment and execution of social media in higher ed has simply fallen far short of what is possible.

- — Karlyn Borysenko (@KarlynMB)Thu, Mar 22 2012 13:28:24i'll say it: many higher ed social media folks are lazy and don't want to try things that are hard to implement. #higheredlive
