Abstract: In the academic stream of consumer-brand relationship, co-creation is an emerging, dynamic concept that proposes a new, active and integrative role of consumers in the brand building process. Brand communities on social networks such as Facebook are in the focus of the study. This article proposes a new typology of co-creation (minor or major) on two criteria: the interaction and duration (on a short/long period). The findings are derived from an extended study of the brand Axe in a transnational context (France and Tunisia) having applied a netnography approach. Based on the conclusions of the study, a new relation between long term co-creation and brand love is suggested to be validated in future research. Managerial implications are provided.
