Pay attention to the colour of the base of the bulb and the socket, don't mix the different metals.

there is anti corrosion compound (lubricant ) that is available from any electrical supply , including big box, stores. I use it on any place two electrical connections are made before screwing them together or splicing them. It works great on dissimilar metals such as a aluminum socket and copper bulb base (or visa-versa ). it5 is also a good precaution on similar metal connections
