The paper suggests that a variety of newly emerged/emerging journalistic forms have enriched online media content. The authors define these as innovative textual, audio, pictorial, and/or video techniques for presenting journalistic production. By examining digital content across both desktop and mobile-based platforms of media organisations, the authors identify 15 ‘hybrid’ and 9 ‘genuine’ new content forms and suggest a draft table-format map for their classification.
