Objectives: The Generalized Problematic Internet Use Scale 2 (GPIUS 2) is a short self report questionnaire assessing Internet addiction based on a cognitive behavioral model. Our main goal was to evaluate the psychometric properties of its French version among a sample of students and to appraise the relevance of the generalized problematic Internet use model.Methods: A sample of 563 university students aged between 18 and 35 years (M = 20.8; SD = 2.7) completed several online self report questionnaires including the GPIUS 2, the Internet Addiction Test (IAT) and the Center for Epidemiologic Study Depression scale (CES D).Results: Confirmatory Factorial Analyses revealed a poor but acceptable overall fit for the original five factor model and the original four factor model. Path analyses, testing Structural Equation Modeling provided showed a poor fit to the data, suggesting insufficient construct validity.
