An important element of social functioning is the ability to adapt to and use of cultural goods. At the present stage of social development the ability to use information technology, the Internet, which has become a part of social engagement and social exclusion, is an indispensable element. The study shows the possibilities and limitations of social exclusion in selected, but according to the authors the most excluded, social groups - persons in need of economic support and intellectually disabled people. Availability or rather unavailability, capabilities and public interest may serve as an example of social exclusion in the field of technology.
