Definitely have both. A self-hosted WordPress blog to be your main online business front and then multiple social media accounts that can be used to promote your business (facebook, twitter and pinterest would be my main choices, google + would be in my top 4).

The reason for having your own blog as the main part is because you aren't limited in what is allowed to put on there. Social media networks like Facebook have TOS you need to follow so you could be limited in how you want to promote your business. If you have your own site, and only use the social media to create a following and bring them to your business site you won't be hit hard if for any reason the site changes their TOS.
