Many of the top brands are there. You name it, most of them are on Facebook. And I'm sure their legal eagles are all protective of their intellectual assets. Yet the clause you cited did not prevent them from creating a presence on Facebook.
I know many similar cases where people just assumed, like you do, that if everyone is doing something somewhere, then it must be safe/legal/etc. They were naive, and wrong.
Besides, those big entities (Google, Microsoft, etc.) can have special private agreements with Facebook. So again relying on their presence on Facebook as an indicator of it being legally safe is naive and dangerous.
So, instead of relying on others, you should read the ToS yourself and indicate if you find my analysis wrong and in what respects. Nobody here has shown it to be wrong so far. We will continue to ignore Facebook until it changes its ToS or disappears like any other fad.
