Facebook invented the flick, a brilliant time unit you won’t get to actually use

When I first heard about the “flick” being a new time unit invented by Facebook, I immediately started to think about what sort of Facebook activity it’s intended to measure. And I linked to video consumption since we regularly use the same word to refer to full motion pictures.

It turns out that I was wrong in one regard. The flick will not measure something that you do while perusing the social network. But it is related to video and audio.
