Understanding Co-Creation Through a Playbour Lens

We examine consumer-firm relationships in an online co-creation platform through the lens of “playbour”. Through this lens, we draw into question the dichotomous relationship between play and labour, suggesting that the two can co-exist in a way that makes co-creation relationships beneficial to both consumers and firms.
