Counting goals for social interactions

Is it possible to configure a goal for a social interaction? Or do I need to use an event instead?

Are you talking about people who interacted with a social icon on your site? Or visitors that came to the site via social?

For the first, this would need to be setup as an Event. This is good to setup if you want to track social shares from social links on the site.

For the second, this would be just a simple channel report for social (under the Acquisition tab).

Social Interactions hitType will be Social and not an Event. So, I don't think you will be able to setup Goals with Social Interactions hits.

Instead, you can use Event tracking and setup goals based on that.
