Creating new knowledge is a core process in managing and enabling knowledge especially though socialisation in social networks. The social nature of social technologies and knowledge creation attracts research on knowledge creation in social networks. Social technologies a less costly but yet collaborative and diverse platforms for social networking, creating new knowledge and leveraging personal and collective knowledge. Building a knowing organisation may extend beyond knowledge sharing into creation of new knowledge. This paper explores existing aspects regarding joint creation of knowledge “knowledge co-creation” in social networks. The paper demonstrates how the empirical ideas on co-creation can be useful in exploring knowledge co-creation. This discussion explores and introduces the scope of knowledge co-creation in online social networks. We derive a typology of knowledge co-creation that suggests pathways and hypothetical propositions into exploring knowledge co-creation of in social networks.
