These days, it can be seen that an increasing number of people, especially the youth, are getting trapped by depressive disorders, and thus more and more attention has been paid to this topic. But to what extent media users’ attitude towards those adolescents are influenced by authority are still remains unclear. Based on the NAS (network agenda setting) theory, our study focused on the media and public users’ attitude towards adolescent depression on Sina-Weibo in order to explore this theory in the context of health communication. Furthermore, we captured hundreds of posts on this media platform using big data analytics and divided those accounts into three categories: (1) integrated media organizations, (2) professional media organizations, and (3) public users. Then we employed context-analyzing method to study them, and a network analysis was also conducted to examine our initial hypotheses by using the QAP. The research results reveal that media agenda correlate with the public users, and the two types of media mentioned above have different levels of impact.
