In the year 2020, we got tremendous of problems and topics that we should not avoid facing and discussing, but it’s not easy to keep confronting those issues. In the age of digital media, people are easily distracted their attention from what we need to see by absorbing entertainment continuously in the overflowed information. A strategic policy has been implemented many times all around the world in the past that distracting people’s attention from politics by providing entertainment in order to control people smoothly. “Sweet Bubble” is a web browser extension to replace political keywords with other words related to entertainment. It shows to users a view from the inside of comfortable(sweet) filter bubble, but at the same time, it makes users aware of “what is hidden”.
