I just used societal in an article where I did not want to use social. The reason was because I wanted to refer to the idea of objective progress in society, and not to a subjective or shared idea motivating that progress, i.e. social progress.
Societal, in my view, takes the politics out of it, which is probably why it is used by social scientists and anthropolgists.
