Next, we will add style to the HTML structure. To add a hover effect to the social media icons we will use HTML :hover pseudo-class, which allows special styling for hover effects. When the cursor hovers over an object the hover pseudo-class applies special style properties to it.

 @import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Poppins&display=swap');  
*{
margin: 0;padding: 0;
box-sizing: border-box;
