So on the facebook example, when you create your account, you are writing to the database(adding something new to it), when you are using the echo command you are reading from the database.

No problem Warren, it's complicated stuff at first, but it gets way easier once you get the fundamentals. There are just a lot of fundamentals. Let me know if my expanded comment above helps at all

It doesn't create an editable field, it prints out a line of code. So this is what is happening: We have a database that stores information in tables. Lets say we have a table called the users table, and in the users table we will have a bunch of columns, like first_name, last_name, email_address. in the HTML of your website, you want to be able to reference that information saved in the database, so you have to write a line of code to do that. In this case the line of code could be read out as "say "Hello 'user_name_of_person_logged_in'" or "Hello Warren"
