    At our home screen, we need to find this blue and white icon here.
    We tap it once to open up MapMyRun. It will automatically take us to the "Record a Workout" page where we can start automatically.

    We need these three horizontal white lines in the top left-hand corner.
    When we tap on that, it brings up this menu where we can scroll down to the bottom.

    Find "Settings", which is second from last.
    It's indicated by a cog on the left-hand side. Tap "Settings" to open up different options here. In different videos, I've talked us through these first two sections.

    Scroll until we find "Social Posting", which is the third section.
    We'll have the option to post by Twitter and by Facebook. I've actually logged in to MapMyRun using Facebook. That automatically gives the application access. However, with Twitter, I haven't.

    We'll try it on the Facebook one here.
    We can enable "Post On Start" if we want people to know we're running. We see that's enabled when it's blue, then we tap again on the bubble to disable.

    Tap "Post in Progress", to either enable or disable it.
    After tapping "Post Interval Type", we have the option to choose "Time" or "Distance". We can just select one and post the interval time as well. We can scroll through to whichever one suits us.

    We don't need to press save, we just go back to "Post in Progress", using the Back arrow at the top left-hand corner of the screen.
    It will take us back to "Facebook Settings".

    Same goes for Twitter. We will learn very quickly now, going in our settings, how we can enable access to Twitter.
