Questions and Answers

When I type my friend's name it won't show her?

There is so many Nicoles and I can't find her

You will need to contact your friend to find her user name. The user name may be not even a name. You can register on MapMyRun with any name or log in with Facebook, where the application will use Facebook details. For more information on how to edit one's user name, please view our tutorial on how to edit profile data in MapMyRun, where steps 6 and 7 clearly demonstrate that. Therefore, for example, a user name for John Smith can be something like jsmith11 if he desires to. You can also give your own details to your friend so that she can add you. You can find your name in step 6 of our tutorial on how to view your profile.
