    Thank you both. I think I'll keep routine files [the work is image-heavy] in the file system, and only use the Attachment type for more ad-hoc stuff like explanatory or instructional text files etc.

    FB is tough enough for B2C, even with a social-oriented business. I can't see it working at all for B2B. LinkedIn might work for B2B, depending on what you're trying to achieve.
