The Correct Answer is:

  •  The average length of video on your site is 35 minutes.

 Explanation: The length of a session and campaign depends on your site and business. Here are a few ideas to get you started thinking about session and campaign timeouts:

  • If your site automatically signs a user out after being inactive for a certain amount of time, set the session timeout to match that length of time.
  • Lengthen the session time if you have a lot of content and expect users to take a long time engaging with that content. Conversely, shorten the session time if the site has a small amount of content.
  • Set the campaign timeout handling to the same amount of time the campaign is going to run or expected to be relevant. Clicks to a social media micro-campaign might not be relevant for more than a few days after launch.

Campaign timeout cannot be greater than 2 years. Sessions cannot be less than 1 minute or greater than 4 hours.
