Hi there, Edwin! You're doing terrific so hang in there. You simply have an extraneous colon after your selector. Colons are used in CSS to specify a pseudoclass, so it's expecting to find one. Simply erasing the colon after .social-links will cause the code to pass Step 2.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

thank you!
