Not expierienced either but I think that is the case as well (similar to
hosting a website I think). Also check with your ISP if they are OK with
it. There are probably other issues such as upload speed. Maybe you need
to co-locate your server?

This is a very good question, but I am guessing it is about following
the instructions and keeping software up to date. But if anything, I
assume it will be small scale  since they are normally federated. I am
subscribed to the gnuMediaGoblin mailing list and it seems that there
are some experts that are OK with some hand-holding durring the setup
process. I have seen similar things in gnusocial. I guess the best
course of action is to subscribe to the development mailing list of the
social media you want to host and ask there. 
It is a great power you will give people around you but also a great
responsability. I was going to try for something not too critical and
small to start with and go from there. Good luck!
