One of the biggest disadvantage of social media is the risk of negative comments. Your competitors can use it
What really matters is whether or not your target audience uses social media. There are no advantages or disadvantages to media, per say. It's simply a vehicle for your message. Either your potential clients are they, or they aren't.
Look at your market, message, and media match. You want all three aligned.
What are you selling, exactly?

I think the disadvantage of social media marketing is that you can't always control what other people are going to say about you or your product. Whatever you choose to do, just make sure that you stay on top of responses and try to head off anything negative. That being said, social media marketing is a really effective tool when utilised properly and aimed at the right audience.

I think the main disadvantage of Social Media is its ever evolving nature. Because of fragmentation of the audience, changes in tech and user's interest, the 18-49 crowd doesn't just spend time on Facebook. It's Facebook for this, Instagram for that, Snapchat for this and Pinterest for that. Instead of the where, focus should be more on the why because the where is going to change
