The meaning of this content, can be said to be universal because of its breadth, it can even be said to be limitless. In just one content topic, hundreds to thousands of content can be born in various ways of presentation, even millions if taken from various points of view.

In creating content, I still think we must have or maintain values ​​that are upheld. But in general, make sure the content does not contain SARA.

What is SARA, sir?

SARA stands for Ethnic, Religion, Race and Intergroup. Moreover, we live in Indonesia, which has ethnic diversity, so making content with SARA elements should not be done because it can cause social conflict because it is very sensitive for some people.

There are many examples, such as memes, jokes, dances, and even pranks that actually enter entertainment content (but make sure if you want to make pranks content, think carefully so that it doesn't get multiple interpretations), challenge content or content that contains pets. All content that is entertaining in nature, anyway.
