Twitter and Facebook share one characteristic in common, they both change rapidly, and every time is more difficult for its users to keep up with all the updates and tweets post in their feeds, and to filter out the most relevant ones. I present MySocialTree a novel tool for navigating users feeds using hierarchical structures. This paper describes the goals of the project and the challenges faced in its development. An initial implementation of the tool was developed and deployed on http://mysocialtree.appspot.com, and an exploratory user satisfaction survey suggests that the tool can be easy to understand and effective at finding the most relevant posts in the feed.
