Cookies and Chrome: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back ere
As a rule, summer is a period of much-needed downtime in our industry; a chance to take a pause and prep for the inevitably frenetic race to the end of the year that starts on the first Tuesday after Labor Day weekend. All that to say, we don’t usually expect any news of note to happen in these brief months, but in late July, Google threw us all a curve. The announcement from the Privacy Sandbox that they are extending the deadline for removing 3rd-party cookies from Chrome until late 2024 wasn’t exactly a surprise. Many marketers no doubt heaved a sigh of relief—with roughly 80% of business decision makers still heavily reliant on 3rd-party data, this extension was pretty much a foregone conclusion—and this delay is a reprieve of sorts, but not in an out of sight, out of mind kind of way. The data and identity landscape is complex and fast-moving; for most of us, devising a cookieless strategy for targeting and measurement will require a unique cocktail of deterministic, probabilistic, and contextual solutions, and the process won’t be quick—or easy. Now that Google has given us the gift of extra time, it’s crucial to use it wisely. Read more…
