shed light on our research questions, we draw on research and theory concerning digital technology in newsrooms, digital storytelling and interdisciplinarity. Engineers and developers often work in teams that are separate from the editorial development teams and the business development teams in a media company. However, without the necessary cross-disciplinary collaboration between different professional groups, innovation might become difficult and counter-productive ( Westlund 2011 ; Westlund 2012 ).

Recent digital ethnographic methodological innovations reflect general ontological and epistemological shifts within the field of internet research. In a digital media saturated world, the meaning of what constitutes presence and action is changing with the fast pace of development and adoption of socially mediating technologies. This also explains the continuous

Digital inequality can be defined from the perspectives of access, usage, skills and self-perceptions ( Robinson et al. 2015 ). This study focuses on usage and will have its point of departure in theories explaining who takes up use of new media technologies.

Our starting point is to emphasise the importance of revenues and to allow for adaptation. Here a business model is “in the sense of being self-sustainable on the basis of the income it generates” ( Brousseau & Penard, 2007 : 82). Business models need to allow for elements of change ( Linder & Cantrell, 2000 ) and “how the firm receives and provides value to other entities in the value network and how the entities within the value

In this article, we will highlight a few such examples, as we find that there is uncovered ground between the narratives of institutional gloom and technological euphoria regarding innovation in visual story telling methods.

In an industry that prizes innovation and originality, this free thinking can be very helpful.
