“From the beginning, we aspired that GoPlay could contribute to the future of Indonesia through positive and also entertaining content, and we also saw this demand from GoPlay users. Through this program, more creators can fully create interactive, educative, and entertaining shows for their true fans, and not just create another viral content only. Doing live streaming content is not as easy as creating regular video content that can be edited or added some filters, or other ways to enhance the final result. But in live streaming, creators can show their potential to get to know and interact with viewers more. So that in the end, the audience can appreciate more than just the video editing skills, but the quality of the creator’s work in question.” Edy concluded.
