Recommended Timeout length for Google Analytics session settings?

In Google Analytics, we have
Admin -> .js Tracking Info -> Session Settings -> Session timeout.
The default is 30 minutes. Should I/we set it to 15 minutes to match Xenforo?

The only thing it affects is reporting in Google Analytics... so it's really how you want to view reports. Like do you want someone going to 1 page and then a 2nd page after 20 minutes showing as 1 session with 2 page views, or 2 sessions with 1 page view each?
