PART 4: Mitigating the Negative Effects of Identifier Depreciation
What effect will identifier deprecation across mobile and display have on CTV viewer experience, and how can any potential negative effects be mitigated?
I think the industry should see the deprecation of traditional identifiers as an opportunity to do things in a more consumer-centric, privacy-forward manner.
When it comes to CTV, sharing metadata and contextual information is key, as are traditional TV metrics such as about time of the day and where and how to best reach the audiences. This information can be all put together to create a relevant ad experience for consumers.
It’s perfectly acceptable to give up some precision on the user level, as long as the quality of the advertising and the user experience is advanced, which is what modern ad servers can facilitate.
