Wear your heart on your sleeve? Former Facebook executive Dave Morin wants you to show your emotions on his social networking site Path.

Path The latest feature from Morin's San Francisco start-up is called "emotions," buttons that let you show how a photograph or a short video a friend has posted on Path makes you feel.

The feature is similar to Facebook's "like" button but expresses a much broader range of emotion.

Path is building what it calls a "personal network," a way to share content with your closest 50 connections rather than hundreds of friends and acquaintances on Facebook and other social networking sites. It allows people to share photos and 10-second video "moments" from their iPhones.

According to Path, this is just the first in a series of new features.
