Texting to provide answers

According to ABC News, The Birds and Bees Text Line, which was opened in North Carolina by The Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign is a new way for teens in North Carolina to get more information the sexual questions they have. The response line was started to allow kids to be able to reach out and ask these questions via a medium they're comfortable with and a medium that will provide the correct information.

Sally Swanson, the campaign's community programs manager, stated this about the line:
"A lot of what we do is validation that what they're going through is normal and a lot of it is correcting myths."

What do you think about providing teens information via this medium?
