For insight into the public relations of Facebook, Shel Holtz cites an example of a deft response by the Mayor Clinic to an attack on one of its doctors. 
 
The hospital made its own response, allowed relevant comments to stand on its wall for some 42 hours, then redirected them into a discussion forum. 
 
Study of an incident like this should make PR staffers more confident of  handling a Facebook "crisis" should one arise.
