Storing response in input

I have a response from the Facebook API I'm trying to store in an input before submit.

I set it in a var which when console logged it shows all of the data I need.

I then try to set that into the value of the input field:
$("#fbPageLikes").val(fbPageLikes);

Open in new window


But then when it inserts into the database I only see [object][object].  How can I actually show the data there?

So it looks like fbPageLikes is a JavaScript object that contains an array named data.  The array is a collection of JavaScript objects, each with a few named elements.  You might try using JSON.stringify(fbPageLikes) in the JavaScript to make the information into a string for HTTP transport, and json_decode() in the PHP script.  After json_decode() use var_dump() to visualize the information sent by JavaScript.
