Measuring internet addiction in Europe-based knowledge societies: a case study of France

Abstract : The technological evolution has put a new challenge, internet addiction along with the internet technology before the world. The study intended to collect the data pertaining to internet usage among the residents of France with the help of modified internet addiction test tool, which is originally developed by Widyanto et al. (2011). The study data is collected from 122 respondents. The outputs of the analysis provided interesting insights. It is proved from the analysis that age has more bearing on the level of internet addiction. Yet, subtle factors are playing a role in providing a vague picture about the influence of constructs on internet usage and addiction. During first stage of analysis, the effect of emotional management is not present, during second stage effect of time management is not evident and in third stage of analysis, except the effect of emotional management index no other effect of constructs is found on the internet usage pattern.
