First-party data, creative content and superior customer experience paramount, as the internet loses its appetite for third-party cookies.



In a House hearing yesterday, where the CEOs of Google, Twitter and Facebook were questioned about the power of their platforms, they signaled openness to algorithm regulation, Politico reported.

As digital privacy and algorithm accountability continue to come under scrutiny, third-party cookies will become part of internet history.

Publishers should act now to optimize their organization's first-party data and customer-centricity strategies .
