@don Martins thats true, facebook though helps in the case of photos but doesn't store up documents. And like you said 'email' can be used in terms of doc, thanks for the tips;). Do also feel free to checkout other posts too.
It's a good idea. I use this sometimes to get some photos on facebook. I also use my mail as well. But there are still some other type of files that can't be stored on facebook. E.g documents. That's where email comes in handy.
