Back to the cookie-less future

Since we first covered the topic in episode one, Google has revealed that it will NOT replace third-party cookies with an equivalent mechanism to identify individual users. Cue anxious marketers asking themselves: "How are we going to do our jobs?!" Fortunately, Dan, Jenna, and Nasser are back to paint a much more vivid picture of our cookie-less future, gliding their hoverboards across talking points including:

  • Why are third-party cookies going away?
  • User Tracking 101
  • Privacy-preserving approaches to real-world problems
  • What the FLoC?
  • Welcome to cohort party 29056!
  • The Three-Step Cookie Doomsday Preparedness Plan™
