Just so it's out there for everyone, when you create a new group in the 
FB chat on their site, you can click the "amend" link that comes after 
the chat group name, it will bring up all of your friends and fan pages, 
and you can just click them, and then save the changes, instead of 
dragging them one by one into the group :)
