Hello all! I'm pretty much clueless as to how to write code. I saw the following script from http://thinkdiff.net/facebook/users-demographic-data-from-facebook/ so I decided to play around with it but I just can't get it to work. I created the table shown and also a file bd.php where it has the info for database connection, I'm pretty much stuck. what do I write to insert that information into the database? I have no idea what the '$this' part is supposed to do. Thanks for any input!

<?php
    include_once "fbmain.php";
    $config['baseurl']  =   "http://thinkdiff.net/demo/newfbconnect1/demographicdata/index.php";
 
    //if user is logged in and session is valid.
    if ($fbme){
        //collect some data using legacy api
        $param  =   array(
            'method'     => 'users.getinfo',
            'uids'       => $fbme['id'],
            'fields'     => 'birthday_date, interests, locale, political, relationship_status, affiliations',
            'callback'   => ''
        );
 
        try{
            $info           =   $facebook->api($param);
        }
        catch(Exception $o){
            error_log("Legacy Api Calling Error!");
        }

If you do something similar to this:

$my_something = new Something();
$my_something->db = new Database_class_thing();

You can than access $this->db from within the class. I.e, it assumes you have a database class that has a function that takes an array and puts it into the database. You could also just write a query there instead and throw that at mysql_query.
