Banks and financial institutions play a significant role in the economy by facilitating the transfer of resources between lenders and borrowers, and also CSR is part of their activity. This study compares the CSR activities and financial and social banking in Iranian banks. This research is based on a questionnaire and all questions answered by bank employees. Our investigation reveals a clear relationship between CSR and social banking. However, most people have not enough information in this field. Also, some banks have social media platforms based on social banking and they add a section for the CSR activities in the platform.
