What's the difference between societal and social?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ErikRed1

A societal problem is specifically a problem regarding the society.

Social problem can be a problem regarding socializing.

Like a society that has polygamy can have a societal problem that a few men have all the wives, and the leftover men get banished and dubbed "lost boys".

This can also be a social problem, but you can also have a social problem where you always laugh at funerals out of nervousness.

"Social problem" pretty much covers all manner of human interaction and community, where "societal problems" are more geared towards a community's cohesion.
