Thanks to the power of Twitter and with especial thanks to my followers on Twitter, this post is a showcase of businesses from a range of sectors who are using the recently revamped (Feb '09) Facebook pages which now look more like individual profile pages.
The Facebook pages page doesn't really give any good company examples - just the NYT, so in a Tweet I asked "Do you know good examples of Facebook company pages please?"

Facebook explanation of the best way to engage brands
Facebook Head of Brand Solutions, Chris Pan talks about: Fan pages as an authentic voice | Brand fan pages by fans | Content is king | What people want to hear vs. what you want to tell them | Facebook marketing solutions
The ten Facebook company examples
These are the responses I wanted to share with others - more welcomed in comments! Not looking at Facebook Applications here.
Thanks to @DJBenLogan who says "Hey Dave - The National Trust seem to update their Facebook group frequently with video content etc".
This is an example of a Facebook Group rather than a page. For me, Facebook seems to have not developed the Group functionality as much as other areas, so I think the Facebook pages are now the best way to go.
