Epic tweet from @iamdylancurran on his (your) data

1. Google stores your location (if you have it turned on) every time you turn on your phone, and you can see a timeline from the first day you started using Google on your phone — Dylan Curran (@iamdylancurran) March 24, 2018 3.

The end of advertising as we know it

T

I recently read this piece by James McQuivey of Forrester and it’s definitely worth taking a look at. Just in case you don’t take my advice, the focus of the article is that large companies like P&G, GE and JP Morgan Chase are revisiting their digital (display) ad spend and are asking Google and Facebook for transparency into their reporting.
