You can use the Friend lists in Facebook for both friends and pages. Which means that it's possible to sort your pages - and easily switch between seeing input from friends or input from pages.
Start by creating friend lists. There are default lists such as Family and Close Friends, but you can easily add more.
Make some lists for your pages. Determine a category, set up a list for that category, and select the pages you want to see for it. Like the friend lists, you can add many page lists.
Once you have all your lists set up, all you have to do is select a list from the Friends section in the navigation bar to see the status items from the pages in that particular list.
