Java Java Annotations Writing Your Own Annotation Putting It All Together

I think I have this correct, but it keeps giving me an error with the Social Network Public Class. What should I do?

The problem is somewhere at line 13 in the test java tab.

Test.java
import java.lang.annotation.ElementType;
import java.lang.annotation.Retention;
import java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy;
import java.lang.annotation.Target;

@Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
@Target(ElementType.METHOD)
@interface Test {
  String element1() default "default value 1";
  int element2() default 0;
}

public class SocialNetworkTest {
  @Test(element1 = "value 1", element2 = 1)
  public void testMethod1() {
  }

  @Test(element1 = "value 2", element2 = 2)
  public void testMethod2() {
  }

  @Test(element1 = "value 3", element2 = 3)
  public void testMethod3() {
  }
}
SocialNetworkTest.java
public class SocialNetworkTest {
  public void testTweet() {

  }

  public void testInsta() { 

  }

  public void testFacebook() { 

  }

  public void testPinterest() { 

  }

  public void testSnapchat() { 

  }
}
TestAnalyzer.java
public class TestAnalyzer {
  /**
   *  Counts the number of methods in the class given by `clazz` that have been annotated
   *  with the @Test annotation.
   */
  public static int getNumAnnotatedMethods(Class<?> clazz) {
    return 0;  
  }
}

The class "SocialNetworkTest" is already defined in another file, as seen on the 2nd tab. Any additions or changes to that class should be made there instead of re-defining it in Test.java.
