A "tag" is a snippet of code that allows digital marketing teams to collect data, set cookies or integrate third-party content like social media widgets into a site.
This is a bad re-purposing of the word "tag", which already has specific meanings in computing.
Why do we need a new word for this? Why not just call it a "script" or "code snippet"?
- words to avoid using
- using an alternate dumbed-down/user-friendly name for something
- language: misuse of word
