Otherwise rational people were hoarding freeze-dried food and making plans to hide in the woods on New Year’s Eve 1999. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), due to take full effect in May 2018, could be the digital marketing equivalent of Y2K – in a good way. The GDPR applies to all companies that do business in Europe,...

Rather, either through normal reading of tweetstreams and the like, or through the use of APIs available to any developers, a company called Geofeedia, monitored social...
