Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

You asked, Instagram listened. The powers that be just rolled out some cool new updates, including the ability to update captions. Now, if you make a typo, post the wrong emoji, or tag the wrong person, you can go back and edit. Also, the Explore page is now split into two sections: photos to scroll through and people to follow.
