Make sure the loops on the wire ends wrap clockwise, like a backwards question mark. That way, the loops get tighter as you tighten the screw. (It's also required by code.)

I also see that you've purchased a socket with a three prong outlet on it. That third prong really needs to be grounded. I'd take that fixture back and find one with a two prong outlet (if they still make them), or a plain socket like you had before.
