Are the following sentences acceptable, natural, or not natural? Thank you most sincerely.

1. Everything has its advantages and disadvantages, and so does the Internet.
2. Everything has its advantages and disadvantages; so does the Internet.
3. Everything has its advantages and disadvantages; the same is true of the Internet.

'Everything has its advantages and disadvantages — including the internet.'
