    I would suggest .org, .net and the country specific domains (only for your country) are beneficial after .com. But each extension has it's own importance according to the use. If you have any organisation then go with .org. If there is educational site then you can go with .edu. If you would like to spread the awareness and acquire market in your country then go with country specific TLDs like .in, .uk,.au etc.

    Now there is new trend of TLDs like brand name that is if you have xyz product then your domain will be domain_name.xyz that is your brand name. It is not that much popular in terms of SEO.

    Value for what? For branding and marketing? Then only .com. For PBN and backlinks? Then doesn't matter at all. Backlinks matter, not tld in slightest degree.
