You're almost there. You've created the declaration in the CSS file, now you need to add the margin and padding rules.

.social-links {
    // code here

any value goes in between the curly brackets in the CSS file. like this. /Just replace the display and color with margin and padding and remember to use pixels or ems or rem's./ Just keep coding you got this!

.social-links {
    display: inline-block;
    color: #000000;
