Doubt about seed setting

I'm doing some data analysis and I wrote set.seed(100) at the top of my code.
My question is: can I set a random value for the seed? Is there a meaning for a specific value of the seed?

You can use any integer. set.seed()allows the same random numbers to be used for reproducible results. There is no meaning for any one value. It's just the parameter used by the random sampling algorithm.

Check ?set.seed for more detail.

If you leave it out you'll still get random values, but they will differ each time.
