Social media icon swapping

Okay I have two images for a facebook icon. One image is a dark color for the normal state and the other is a blue color for when you hover over it. How do I code it so when I hover over the image it switches from the dark to the blue color?

This is what I have so far but all it does is turn the opacity down for the dark image and you don't see the blue image.


<div id="facebook_swap">                              
                    <img src="img/facebook_dark.png" alt="facebook">




    #facebook_swap img:hover{

ohh, mmmm. And I assume you've triple checked the image name.

Check out this codepen I did using your code as a base, and see if you don't see a difference. I can't figure it out yet. So it must be something small that is causing it to not work.

Try removing the space between the url and the parenthesis in the CSS.

Their actually isn't one. It just looks like that in here.

You were right. I must have spelled the file wrong. hahaha Thanks.
