Depending on which side of the “lifespan” issue you are on, channels can certainly help. If you are a poster and want your posts to stay longer, the channel will facilitate that by making it necessary for another post for the similar channel to come through which would be less often than in an Aggregate Content Area. From the publisher side, you want the latest and freshest on top, faster turn around. But it doesn’t seem like we are really seeing a lack of new, fresh content from any of our partners. If anything, those that utilize our tool post more often thus there is always fresh content.
