So if now is the time to start paying attention, then how do brands unlock the opportunities that TikTok can provide?

  • Fashion brands are abandoning traditional org charts in favor of ‘fluid’ teams
    This article was reported on — and first published by — Digiday sibling Glossy. When it comes to working relationships, increasingly, fashion brands don’t want to tie their employees down.  New business models are emerging in fashion, as brands both recover from a period heavy in layoffs and get accustomed to a remote workforce. Rather than hiring full-time employees for specific roles, companies are enlisting workers with expertise in many areas and supplementing them with outside experts. The results are constantly rotating teams and, overall, fewer limitations on what can be accomplished.   “It’s very fluid,” said Jasmine Mullers, vp ... read more

  • Why the CMA is digging into the Privacy Sandbox, Google’s cookie-killer
    Google’s efforts to rewrite how Chrome users are targeted with ads is now being probed by a UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) keen to ensure it “develops proposals in a way that does not distort competition”. The Drum explores why Google's Privacy Sandbox, the mission to replace third-party cookie, has come under this close regional scrutiny.  Google is reforging the ad-funded internet. Regulators, such as the CMA, are now all-too-aware that Google holds enough power to cause seismic shifts in the functionality of the web with any minor changes it makes – after all, Google Chrome accounts for around 65.3% of web browsing activity. ... read more
