if(logged.status == "connected"){  
FB.api("/me", function(response) {
  $.ajax({  type: "POST",  url: "pass_value.php",  data: {
fb_id: response.id, name: response.first_name, last_name: response.last_name,
 gender: response.gender},  success:

  }, {scope: 'publish_stream'});

 <input type="text"value="I &lt;3 EMOTICODE <img src="http://codegeekz.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" class="wp-smiley"> " />  <input type="button" value="Toggle Disabled" />
// Plugin 
(function($) { 
$.fn.toggleDisabled = function() { 
return this.each(function() { 
var $this = $(this); 
if ($this.attr('disabled')) $this.removeAttr('disabled'); 
else $this.attr('disabled', 'disabled'); 
};  })(jQuery); 
 // TEST 
$(function() { 

7. Smooth Scroller

 //alert('this is the order of boxes you filled out: ' + array1);
 _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Form', 'completed', '"' + array1 + '"']);

var enoughRegex = new RegExp("(?=.{6,}).*", "g");
if (false == enoughRegex.test($(this).val())) {
$('#passstrength').html('More Characters');  }
else if (strongRegex.test($(this).val())) {
$('#passstrength').className = 'ok';
  $('#passstrength').html('Strong!');  }
