News Update: Week of July 13, 2020

Jane O'Hara

Our last weekly news update addressed the growing lack of trust in Facebook and Google; it seems the cracks in those walled gardens have worsened over the past two weeks, with Facebook’s civil rights audit and Google’s GDPR fail, and new antitrust concerns — just to name a few.

While the two tech giants still dominate digital ad spending, publishers see opportunities to leverage their ad platforms’ advantages, from first-party data to feature parity.

This spirit of competition and innovation is the inspiration for this week’s theme: viable and reliable alternatives.

We’ll explore new options, ideas, and advice.
