Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses the inequalities produced by the statistical data offered by Web 2.0 platforms, blogs, or search engines. The discussion outlines the distinguishing features of digital inequalities and offers an account of their interaction with the „conventionai" social and income inequalities. The author puts special emphasis on the positive effects of digital inequalities and the nexus between digital inequalities, the so-called digital divide, and the production of a specific type of capital that he calls 'exhibition value' in the sense of Walter Benjamin.
