Customer engagement is becoming a more important area in online brand community management. There are a number of competing theories that underline the importance of different types of community members in order to positively influence them for the benefit of the brand. This paper shares work in progress, which discusses the review of existing thinking – which is that there are a number of weaknesses and gaps in this area of research.
