Pinning down social good!

I have been struggling to clarify for myself what I understand by "creating social good". However, each attempt to do so leaves me more frustrated in my inability to express clearly what I feel I understand deeply.
Perhaps I am trying too hard to state definitively a notion that owes its power not to precise definition but to its relevance in specific contexts and instances. A notion more at home in stories and testimony than in criteria, rules and algorithms.
Might it be that creating social good, like friendship and joy, can not be reduced to definitive criteria or universal rules but only becomes evident in concrete circumstances?
