    #Familygoals: Family influencers, calibrated amateurism, and justifying young digital labor2017In: Social Media and Society, ISSN 2056-3051, Vol. 3, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Following in the celebrity trajectory of mommy bloggers, global micro-microcelebrities, and reality TV families, family Influencers on social media are one genre of microcelebrity for whom the “anchor” content in which they demonstrate their creative talents, such as producing musical covers or comedy sketches, is a highly profitable endeavor. Yet, this commerce is sustained by an undercurrent of “filler” content wherein everyday routines of domestic life are shared with followers as a form of “calibrated amateurism.” Calibrated amateurism is a practice and aesthetic in which actors in an attention economy labor specifically over crafting contrived authenticity that portrays the raw aesthetic of an amateur, whether or not they really are amateurs by status or practice, by relying on the performance ecology of appropriate platforms, affordances, tools, cultural vernacular, and social capital. In this article, I consider the anatomy of calibrated amateurism, and how this practice relates to follower engagement and responses. While some follower responses have highlighted concerns over the children’s well-being, a vast majority overtly signal their love, support, and even envy toward such parenting. I draw on ethnographically informed content analysis of two group of family Influencers on social media to illustrate the enactment and value of calibrated amateurism in an increasingly saturated ecology and, investigate how such parents justify the digital labor in which their children partake to produce viable narratives of domestic life.

    Influencers Tell All?: Unravelling Authenticity and Credibility in a Brand Scandal2016In: Blurring the lines: Market-driven and democracy-driven freedom of expression / [ed] Maria Edström, Andrew T. Kenyon & Eva-Maria Svensson, Nordicom, 2016, p. 153-161Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses the emerging practices of social media Influencers. In focus are six influential Instagram Influencers who were ‘exposed’ for involving themselves in campaigns aiming to discredit telecommunications providers in Singapore. In the absence of enforced legal boundaries and industry norms regarding advertising formats and advertising ethics, brand scandals are frequent, causing concern among regulators, brand managers, and platform owners. When starting to accommodate commercial brands and contents in social media posts, Influencers are constantly at risk of breaching their contract of trust with their followers. The case study shows how Influencers, followers, and eventually also the brand clients, are sensitive to what they experience as deceptive and unethical behaviours that will put normative pressures onto the Influencers to conform to certain ethical standards.

    Media entrepreneurship: Taking stock and moving forward2017In: JMM - The International Journal on Media Management, ISSN 1424-1277, E-ISSN 1424-1250, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 1-10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This editorial reviews current research about media entrepreneurship and introduces the four papers published in this special issue. These papers move the emerging academic field of media entrepreneurship forward by outlining the relevance of context for enhancing our understanding of entrepreneurial phenomena, by introducing the theoretical concept of ‘entrepreneuring as emancipation’, by analyzing the institutionalization of media entrepreneurship education, and by categorizing different investment types in corporate entrepreneurship. The editorial concludes by calling for continuing efforts to theory-building to further develop the field.

    Steering the Editorial Filter - User Comments as a Negotiated Space for Participation in Online News2014In: ECREA 2014 Lisboa - Communication for empowerment: citizens, markets, innovations: Book of abstracts, 2014, p. 28-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of social media applications, such as blogs, Facebook and Twitter, has offered new participatory opportunities to everyday media users. In some respects, this also marks a transformation of public space, as the broadcasting era’s “audiences” nowadays also can take on the role as participating “co-creators”. Or to put it slightly differently: Contemporary media landscape allows for new forms of coexistence between producer and user generated content. For traditional media companies, this transformation has brought both challenges and opportunities. User generated content has always played a part in media production, but the current media situation has certainly made it a more salient feature. Among online newspapers, specifically, the new opportunities to include users’ participatory practices have taken different forms. For instance, they nowadays allow for convenient Facebook-liking and users linking blog posts to articles. They also spend both time and energy on making it easier for readers to get in touch with them in order to provide pictures, information, corrections, etc. Within this context of offering new, participatory opportunities to the previous “readers”, online newspapers have also come to adapt to and develop on one specifically salient strategy: To allow readers/users to comment on articles online. Media research has already paid attention to user comments as a participatory practice. These studies have typically looked into what technological features for participation that are offered and how they enable and limit users’ participatory practices (cf. Domingo et al., 2008; Hermida & Thurman, 2008). In this paper, we take on a slightly different approach. Firstly, the paper looks into the conditions for participation in terms of topics: What content are users allowed to comment on? How do content characteristics differ between news that are made available and news that are withheld from comments? After having mapped these conditions for participation we – secondly –analyze how users actually navigate within this (conditioned) space: What news are they interested in commenting on? How does commenting vary between different kinds of articles? These questions are answered by help of an analysis of 1.100 news items and their adjacent user interface in an online news site (affiliated with a professionally produced, local newspaper). In terms of methodology we apply quantitative content analysis. Our analysis reveals that the participatory space offered to the readers is geared towards light news, whereas users themselves have clear preferences for commenting news concerning changes in their local environment, about general national politics and welfare issues. The paper concludes with a discussion on potential explanations as to why this discrepancy exists and it also further reflects on its potential implications for users’ participatory practices.

    En hemlös är en hemlös... människa: En kritisk diskursanalys av två svenska gatutidningars representation av hemlösa2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the representation of homelessness in two Swedish street newspapers: Faktum and Situation Sthlm. The study aims to contribute to theorization of media representations of homelessness and also to increase the understanding of street newspapers as a medium and as a platform for vulnerable people. To achieve the aim, the theoretical framework of the study is based on critical discourse analysis (CDA) and representation of class. The study method uses concepts from CDA, together with concepts from van Leeuwen's taxonomy of representation of social actors. A selection of texts from Faktum and Situation Sthlm has been made to examine the representation of homelessness in street newspapers.

    The results show that homeless people are represented within five different discursive themes. In the first one the homeless are constructed as active individuals with human qualities. In the second the opposite image occurs where homeless people are seen as anonymous passive groups. The homeless are also represented as drug-users and criminals. One of the themes includes the representation of causes for homelessness, among them drugs and crimes. Finally an “us” and “them” is constructed where homeless people are seen as opponents to non- homeless people.

    Haktology, Trump, and news practices2018In: The Trump Presidency, Journalism, and Democracy, Taylor and Francis , 2018, p. 77-98Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Hacked and leaked content has become a major source of information for the mainstream news, particularly in the years since Donald Trump snatched the official Republican presidential nomination in 2016. This chapter seeks to identify some salient policies and practices the news media have adopted in their coverage of the rise of Trump to power. Indeed, there is a plethora of literature on the role hackers and leakers as well as news fakers play in today’s journalism (Eggen, 2006; Gunkel, 2005; Jaworski, Fitzgerald, & Morris, 2004; Lievrouw, 2011; Roberts, 2012; Son, 2002; Vegh, 2003). We even have a new theory with a set of principles designed to test, interpret, and predict the phenomenon. Called “haktology,” the theory examines the processes of gaining illegal and unauthorized access to information, its subsequent disclosure to reporters and activists, its transmutation into news reports, and the impact such reports leave on public opinion.

    The role of internal guidelines in shaping news narratives: ethnographic insights into the discursive rhetoric of Middle East reporting by the BBC and Al-Jazeera English2011In: Critical Discourse Studies, ISSN 1740-5904, E-ISSN 1740-5912, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 297-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Critical Discourse Analysis dwells at length with news stylebooks which mainly advise journalists on how certain words are to be written, policies on confused spelling or transliterating [c.f. Richardson, J. (2007). Analyzing newspapers: An approach from critical discourse analysis. Basingstoke: Palgrave], things with little bearing on issues of ideology, power, and dialogism. And if the ideological effects of the internal guidelines are acknowledged [c.f. van Dijk, T.A. (1988). News analysis: Case studies of international and national newsin the press. Hillsdale: Erlbaum and Cameron, D. (1996). Style policy and style politics: A neglected aspect of the language of the news. Media, Culture and Society, 18(2), 315–333], it is seldom backed by textual or ethnographic evidence. The paper attempts to fill in this gap in the literature by highlighting the role internal guidelines play in structuring and patterning the news discourse. It investigates, textually and ethnographically, the part internal guidelines assume in shaping the Middle East narratives of the BBC and Al-Jazeera English (AJE). In the investigation of their role, the paper relies heavily on interviews, observations and access to large portions of the contents of BBC and AJE's internal guidelines. The paper's ethnographic angle helps illustrate how the two news giants use their organizational power for the sake of disseminating and inculcating their ideology and viewpoints vis-à-vis the Middle East conflict. It shows that the way voices in news are represented is not wholly the work of the reporter in the field. Finally, the paper reveals that news institutions have different ways of interfering in how ideas and viewpoints are to be expressed both socially and discursively and how voices are to be ‘tamed’, with the internal guidelines as their main discursive and social tool.

    Smileys Without Borders: A Critique of Transboundary Interaction Between Politicians, Journalists and PR practitioners on Social Media2018In: TripleC: Communication, Capitalism & Critique, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 16, no 1, p. 18-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to contribute a critical theoretical understanding of cross-professional relations on social media, focusing on politicians, journalists and PR practitioners. It is well known that these professional groups establish personal and close relations in offline contexts, but more attention needs to be paid to the role of social media. Here, it is argued that in the context of digital media use, semi-private chatting, humour, and mutual acknowledgment, including the use of likes, smileys, heart symbols, etc., are evidence of a ‘neoliberalisation’ of cross-professional relations. The underlying idea is that the common practice of self-branding undermines representations of professional belonging and exacerbates the blurring of professional boundaries. The critical conceptualisation of such ‘transboundary’ interaction between politicians, journalists and PR practitioners, which is guided by a culturalmaterialist approach, includes the presentation of examples deriving from the Swedish Twittersphere, and suggestions for empirical research.

    Spelar storleken någon roll?: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys av Jönköpings-Posten vid övergången till tabloid2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study is to examine if there´s been any affects in the content of the newspaper regarding the transition of Jönköpings-Posten going tabloid. The primary question that this study is based upon is if Jönköpings-Posten shows tendencies regarding tabloidization in the content due to the shift of the format 7th of November 2013.

    Material and method: The material contains of six newspapers from Jönköpings-Posten, totally 12 parts, in printed format around the time of the shift. A quantitative content analysis has been used as a method where the notion tabloidization has been operationalized.

    Conclusion: As a whole it is not possible to gather a straightforward increase of the tabloidization tendencies. It is not until a closer review of the result been made which tendencies of tabloidization in the content of the newspaper can be identified. The results are many times ambiguous and should regard to earlier research and theories speak for and against a tabloidization at the same time. One conclusion that is drawn concerning Jönköpings-Posten is that the newspaper only in a certain degree show signs of tabloidization in its content, in relation to the shift to tabloid. The study only partially supports the earlier opinion of previous research where a changed format also contributes to a changed content.

    Barnmorskan Bertil och floristen Leif: En innehållsanalys om hur män kvinnliga yrken framställs i svensk dagspress2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kvinnliga yrken är yrken som domineras av kvinnor, exempelvis barnmorska,

    tandhygienist, sjuksköterska och förskollärare. Men det finns även män som har

    dessa yrken och det skrivs också då och då om dem i tidningar. De är ovanliga, men

    blir vanligare då det görs satsningar för att få in fler män på dessa arbetsplatser.

    Att undersöka hur de framställs i media och se vilka varianter av manlighet som

    förmedlas är syftet med denna undersökning. Materialet kommer från svensk

    dagspress och innefattar både lokala och rikstäckande tidningar.

    För att svara på frågeställningarna gjordes en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Materialet

    omfattar tolv artiklar med intervjuer med män i kvinnodominerade yrken.

    Resultatet visar att de flesta männen inte tänker så mycket på manligt och kvinnligt

    och känner inte att deras manlighet är hotad av det kvinnliga yrket. De män som

    känner en motsättning mellan manlighet och yrket var äldre. I artiklarna framhålls

    det att männen trivs med yrket, att de är ovanliga på arbetsplatsen och är

    omvårdande som personer.

    Institutional limits to service dominant logic and servitisation in innovation efforts in newspapers2017In: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 188-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the implementation of service-orientated strategies within newspapers using SDL and servitisation as theoretical departure points. This perspective helps to interpret the advancements and barriers in the current marketing innovation activities in the industry. Based on the exemplary case of the award-winning Svenska Dagbladet, we show that use is made of servitisation and SDL to the extent allowed by some strategic determinants of institutional nature. While some components of SDL have been implemented successfully others–customisation, resource development and coordination, and dialogue-based marketing communication–present managerial opportunities to increase value co-creation. But for this to happen the industry may need to consider changes in some of the institutional components of qualitative news that today act as institutional limits to innovation.

    Cultural Differences in User Privacy Behavior on Social Networking Sites: An Empirical Study comparing German and Swedish Facebook Users2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social Networking Sites (SNSs), such as Facebook, are becoming increasingly popular. Their worldwide accessibility is attracting billions of SNS users from all over the globe, which results in a variety of different cultures meeting on the respective platforms. Apart from their growing popularity, privacy issues represent a downside of SNSs attracting strong media and research attention. Considering SNS users’ cultural diversity, recent studies show that a culture influences the privacy concerns of its respective members. Only little research investigating cultural differences in User Privacy Behavior (UPB) on SNSs has been carried out so far. Furthermore, the majority of existing studies include the United States (US) when comparing different cultures. Taking the fact into account that, for instance, more than three-fourths of all Facebook users are outside the US and Canada, this study builds on the current state of research by comparing the UPB of Ger-man and Swedish Facebook users based on their different cultural characterization. In this context, two of Hofstede’s (1980) cultural dimensions, Masculinity and Uncertainty Avoidance, serve as a foundation for the creation of hypotheses and the development of the research model. The chosen research approach had a quantitative design and was conducted as a web-survey. The sample consisted of 791 valid respondents (667 German college students and 124 Swedish college students). The findings reveal several significant differences between German and Swedish SNS users. According to that, Swedes, as mem-bers of a low masculinity culture, have more SNS friends and a greater amount of strangers within these friends, compared to Germans, as members of a culture character-ized by a higher masculinity. As a result of their comparatively low uncertainty avoidance, Swedish SNS users have more trust in both SNS providers and other SNS members than Germans, characterized by a higher uncertainty avoidance. On the other hand, Germans reveal higher privacy concerns and disclose themselves to a lower extent than Swedes. Besides, Swedish SNS users perceive the provided control over personal information on SNSs as sufficient, while Germans indicate a need for more control. Moreover, Germans apply the provided control settings to a greater extent than Swedes. The results provide relevant insights for SNS providers and help them in adapting their services in consider-ation of the respective cultural attitudes in terms of UPB.

    "Vi är så glada och tacksamma att Fredagspodden sponsras av...": En analys av dold marknadskommunikation i Fredagspodden2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay studies the podcast Fredagspodden and their sponsors by doing a qualitative text analysis with a hermeneutic perspective. The essay studies if it is possible to distinguish the sponsored content of the podcast, how the hosts discuss other products and if the podcast follow the laws, rules and ethical guidelines that exist. The qualitative text analysis is implemented with the theories stealth marketing, hermeneutic suspicion, parasocial interaction and native advertising. The result of the study shows that it is possible to distinguish the sponsored content of the podcast. However, the clarity varies depending on the episode and the amount of attention of the listener. The result also shows that the hosts often mention other products they have produced and also products that their own production has produced. I both if these cases the podcast follows all laws and rules but concerning whether this is ethically correct could be discussed. In the analysis an ethical discussion will be held which ends with the authors suggesting a change in the laws as well as the implementation of an authority with the mission to control ethical violations in podcasts.

    Gender Representation in TV Advertising regarding Social Interaction: The Construction of Stereotypes through Symbolism and Connotations2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gender representation is a frequently addressed field within media and communication studies in general and in the subject of TV advertising in particular. Previous research mainly focused on the detection of commonly exploited stereotypes that are used to portray women and men respectively. Much emphasize has been placed on the relationship between the sexes regarding social roles and professions, embedded in a cultural and ideological context.

    The purpose of this scientific work however is to examine how the construction of gender stereotypes in media takes place, which practices are used to connote meaning. Using a qualitative method, namely a visual discourse analysis, the aim of the study is to unveil subtle but also obvious symbols and characteristics that are used to represent feminine and masculine traits respectively in order to expand the current body of research. This proceeding marks an approach to have a closer look at the social interaction of females and males in TV advertisements in order to get an insight in the allocation of power and subsequently, social roles. Four TV advertisements are used as objects of investigation. As a theoretical fundament, the gender theories of sexism, masculinism and feminism are introduced.

    The findings suggest that the representation of women and men still follows strong patterns of stereotyping, not just on the level of role allocation but also on a behavioral level. However, the study comes to the conclusion that an asymmetric treatment of the sexes is not necessarily the result of gender stereotyping; in the case, both sexes are stereotyped similarly, not depicting either men or women dominating their counterparts in a global context.

    "Han är på min to-do-lista": Konstruktion av genus i Paradise hotel 2014 genom deltagarnas samtal.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien fokuserar på hur män och kvinnor gestaltas i Paradise hotel år 2014, samt hur det samtalas om kroppsliga attribut i programmet. Syftet är att få en djupare förståelse för hur män och kvinnor framställs i ett av de populäraste tv-programmen 2014. Detta för att få en ökad förståelse för hur producenterna har makten att framhäva genusbilder.

    För att få fram ett resultat har två avsnitt från halloweenveckan analyserats utifrån metoden Framing analysis. Den utgår från Goffmans (1974) teori, Framing theory, om hur vi gör verkligheten begriplig genom att ”rama in” det mest utmärkande i olika kommunikationsakter, samt Hirdmans (1988), Fredrickson och Roberts (1997) teorier om genus och objektifiering. Studien fokuserar på hur dialoger framställs med koppling till genus. Då innehållet tolkas är det en hermeneutisk utgångspunkt. Inramningen av dialogerna i programmet står i centrum för studien.

    Utifrån det språkbruk som framkom i avsnitten delas studiens material in i ramverk. De ramverk som utvanns ur materialet var objektifierande kvinnor, objektifierande män, känsliga män, sexuella kvinnor och dominanta kvinnor. Därav visade resultatet på omvända genusroller.

    The focus of this study is to see if there are any differences in the how Swedish media portrays female and male killers. Swedish media’s use of language in relation to the news articles about the perpetrators is the basis of the study. 18 news articles from the newspapers Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter and SVT Nyheter were analyzed. The purpose of the study is to see if there are any differences in the portrayal and if so, how they are shown. The analysis constitutes of a critical discourse analysis, also known as CDA, and the framework for text analysis created by Carvalho. The framework creates the possibility of analyzing the texts step by step and helps categorize the different themes in which the language will be analyzed. The categories used in the analysis are object, actors, language, discursive strategies and ideological standpoints. By looking at the linguistic strategies and the choices made by the media we can analyze the material in accordance with the theoretical framework. Critical discourse analysis is the used method as well as theory, along with gender theory about stereotypes and media logic.

     

    The results from the analysis discusses the different discourses found. One of the most prominent phenomenon found was the fact that Swedish media portrayed the killers as their stereotype opposite to them. The results also discuss if the portrayal of the perpetrators can tell us anything about society as a whole.

    Reinforcing Property by Strengthening the Commons: A New Media Policy Paradigm?2012In: tripleC (cognition, communication, co-operation): Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society / Unified Theory of Information Research Group, ISSN 1726-670X, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 49-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In much scholarly writing and in many leftist and activist accounts the enclosures of the cultural commons have been fiercely critiqued. However, during the last years, new media business models, that challenge the notion of the cultural industries as “copyright industries”, has been taking shape. A new class of entrepreneurs is instead working to expand the commons as part of their businesses. Accordingly, representatives from these new media industries, policy makers, and politicians have joined the academic and political critique of the “enclosures of the cultural common”. The paper argues that this is a shift within the dominant media policy paradigm and an attempt to integrate existing practices on the Internet, based on cooperation and sharing, into the market. By relocating the struggle from “intellectual property” to “platform economics”, the media industry can exploit the productivity of the commons while holding on to the power that comes with ownership and property.

    "I slutändan så kommer sannolikhetsläran att jämna ut saker och ting.": En kvalitativ studie om kändisars framförande av native advertising i podcast2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research has studied how celebrities use native advertising in podcasts. This was achieved by studying how the podcasters Alex Schulman and Sigge Eklund in there podcast “Alex och Sigges podcast” construct their advertisement for the online casino company Maria Casino. We wanted to create new theoretical knowledge about native advertising as it is a new phenomenon, specially in podcasts. In the theoretical field we use the theoretical terms legitimation, congruence and authenticity. As method qualitative content analysis, was used. We saw that Schulman and Eklund legitimize gambling to their listeners. In addition they create congruence to Maria Casino and try to act authentic about gambling. In the end of the paper, we discuss what consequences their advertising can get for the listeners.

    Facebook time: Technological and institutional affordances for media memories2014In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 16, no 7, p. 1154-1168Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People are spending increasingly more time on social media platforms, with Facebook being the biggest and most successful. Historically, media technologies have for long been considered of importance for the structuration and the experience of time in general. In this article, we investigate the technological affordances of Facebook for the temporal experiences of its users. Relying on a case study of a Facebook page dedicated to media memories, we link user experiences to technological and institutional affordances. By doing so, we seek to answer the question of how a business model and an infrastructure that largely build on immediacy and newness are experienced and negotiated by users that engage in a multiplicity of durations and time layers in their everyday lives. Drawing on a platform analysis, in-depth interviews and a survey among the users of the page “DT64—Das Jugendradio der DDR,” we develop the concept of “social media time” while considering notions of the archive, flow, and narrative, which contribute to shedding light on how specific media technologies afford specific temporalities. We conclude by discussing the consequences for the users and society at large.

    Does media management matter? Establishing the scope, rationale, and future research agenda for the discipline2007In: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 21-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The field of media management has grown frenetically. Over the past ten years a rash of courses have sprung up all over the world, two journals have been established, as well as two professional associations for academics working in the field. Yet despite—or perhaps because of—this fast growth it remains a confused field, particularly concerning its scope, purpose and methods. This paper addresses these issues in three ways. First, it analyses the current state of play in the field, with specific reference to the theoretical orientations of key players in the field and the implications these have had for scholarship output to date. Second, it adopts the perspective of the media organization and identifies which aspects characterise, or even differentiate, the management task in this context. Finally, by synthesising these contextual insights with research emphases to date, it makes recommendations for future work in the field, both in terms of theoretical perspectives and methodological orientations.

    Leadership in the media industry: Changing contexts, emerging challenges2006Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of leadership in the media industry is a compelling one. While other industries have leaders or captains, the media sector has moguls, magnates and barons. Randolph Hearst, William Paley, Henry Luce and Robert Maxwell represent some of the most controversial and flamboyant business leaders of recent times. And the current crop of contemporary media industry leaders – Rupert Murdoch, Ted Turner and Steve Jobs – is no less charismatic.

    However leadership is also a sprawling area of management theory characterised by ambiguity and controversy. This volume presents a selection of papers from an international conference on ‘Challenges at the Top: Leadership in Media Organizations’ which brought together researchers from around the world to confront these ambiguities, and explore and exchange opinions about this intriguing issue. The diversity and richness of the contributions in this book reflect the diversity and richness inherent in the practice of leadership as exercised in the media sector. The topic is still an under-researched field, and this book makes a contribution towards developing new theory, identifying fruitful areas for future study, and aiding understanding of the drivers of performance of media firms.

    Digital festival engagement: On the interplay between festivals, place brands, and social media2018In: Event Management, ISSN 1525-9951, E-ISSN 1943-4308, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 527-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to explore the digitization of festival engagement due to the emergence of social media and the associated consequences this development brings for festivals and place brands. This is done by drawing on a study of eight festivals that took place in Sweden during the summer of 2015. In total, a material of 77,034 user-generated contents published in social media were collected and analyzed. The presented results illustrate that the studied festivals enjoy considerable levels of digital engagement and that this also generates engagement for the associated places in which the festivals take place. In view of these findings, this article presents the concepts of digital festival engagement and digital place-brand engagement to explain the interplay that takes place between festivals and place brands in social media. By doing so, this article contributes to extant literature within the field of event management by depicting how the digitization of festival engagement adds increased complexity as engagement manifests both physically and digitally, which in turn gives rise to several conceptual and managerial challenges in regards to the management of consumer engagement.

    Comparing coverage of disruptive change in social and traditional media: Evidence from the sharing economy2018In: Technological forecasting & social change, ISSN 0040-1625, E-ISSN 1873-5509, Vol. 129, p. 339-344Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How do social media differ from traditional media in their coverage of disruptive technological change? We explore how two entrants transforming the personal transportation and accommodation sectors are covered in social and traditional media. Using content analysis, we conclude that these two forms of media differ substantially. Traditional media is focused on how the two entrants affect society and their respective sectors at large, whilst social media instead function as accelerators for the entrants as they receive predominantly positive coverage. Therefore, our findings suggest that the rise of social media may accelerate the growth of disruptive innovations which can, in turn, reduce the window for response.

    Managing Exploration and Exploitation in a Media Organisation: A Capability-based approach to Ambidexterity2017In: Journal of Media Business Studies, ISSN 1652-2354, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 146-165Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study contributes to emerging research on management of organisational tensions in the media industry. We approach the topic by utilising the concept of ambidexterity, which has hardly been applied to media organisations. The goal of this study is to provide a capability-based approach to organisational ambidexterity. Thus, we offer a new approach for analysing media management by operationalising ambidexterity with operational and dynamic capabilities.

    The study analyses what kinds of tensions ambidexterity creates between managerial operational and dynamic capabilities. The empirical analysis is based on interviews with top-level managers at the Finnish Broadcasting Company, Yle, during 2013/14. The approach is qualitative. The results are presented by using our theoretical approach of combining exploration and exploitation (ambidexterity) with sensing and seizing (dynamic and operational capabilities).

    iNeed: En kvalitativ studie om motiv till att konsumera en iPhone2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This studies ambition is to broaden the knowledge of the users motive to consume an iPhone. Particular attention has been focused around the need to justify the use and the iPhones role in the user's construction of the self and the social identity. The purpose of this study is to investigate a group of users motives for using a specific type of smartphone, one with a strong brand, to understand the underlying reasons for the use. Smartphones, especially the iPhone, has in recent years become a very popular means of communication. Therefore, it is important to conduct research on the topic to get a deeper understanding of why we use certain technology and in particular how the user perceive this technology. Through a qualitative strategy of research with focusgroup-interview as a method, this study answers questions like: what motives are there to use an iPhone, what impact have iPhone on humans in their construction of the self and the social identity, and what needs are behind the users motive to use an iPhone? The subjects which were most prominent can be summarized in following themes: the construction of self, access to information, social interaction, entertainment value and the so-called iPhone-need. In the design of the ego, iPhone functions both as a symbolic possession and as an aid. It is a tangible extension of one's self and one's social identity. A user of the iPhone can belong to three different kinds of clans: Apple-enthusiasts, media elite and the economical prosperous. The easy and quick access to information that the iPhone offers, and the opportunities for social interaction are strong incentives to the use of the phone. When it comes to the entertainment value in the consumption of an iPhone it appears in the study that humans consume an iPhone to simple play and to be entertained. The consumer uses the iPhone to explore their playfulness. Finally, an emerging phenomenon in the study is the iPhone-need. It is perceived as an entirely new needs by the users when they consume the iPhone. Users feel that the iPhone creates a new need and dependence. However, it is not a new need, but rather a reinforcement or extension of some of the basic needs of humans.

    Managing for Serendipity: Emergent creativity in media organization2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we investigate creative processes in media organization from the viewpoint of serendipity and management of serendipity. In particular, we want to find out how creative media work can benefit from opportunities presented by serendipity, i.e. the accidental discovery of something valuable. Based on an analysis of empirical data collected with the diary method in a media organization, we argue that the serendipitous potential of media organizations is improved if creativity is rigorously managed towards specified strategic, structural and cultural objectives. The study contributes to theory building around serendipity, especially in the field of media management research. It also discusses the rationale of managing for serendipity in creative media organizations. As far as management practices are concerned, our aim is to provide preliminary insights into managing for serendipitous creativity in media organizations.

    Serendipitous Processes in Media Work: Exploring the Value of Creative Coincidences in Media Organisations2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the phenomenon of serendipity in creative media work and in media organizations. Based on an empirical analysis of diary material, we identify and elaborate three types of serendipitous processes in media work, i.e. serendipitous, semiserendipitous and antiserendipitous processes. In addition we discuss the role of lucky incidents and human capabilities in serendipity, and consider their value to creative processes in media work and media organizations. We argue that conceptual frameworks and theories of serendipity are useful in identifying, evaluating and harnessing unpredicted and accidental creative incidents and processes. The paper shows that conceptualizations of serendipity can offer valuable frameworks and insights for research, professionals and companies in the changing media industry.
