The Newsfeed is a digest where you can read the latest game news, watch videos about the new game mechanics or teasers about new features, look at articles in fun tab (puzzles, stories, discussions) and find the contact details of community managers or support team.
The newsfeed button can be found at the bottom bar with icons.
There are 4 tabs in the Newsfeed: News, Video, Fun, and Contacts.
In each tab, you will find information regarding the topic of the tab.
Also, in the left upper corner can be found "Free gifts" button - you can claim free gifts from Community in the newsfeed. Community gifts are the chests with random reward: besides the usual coins or food, the chests can give you various useful resources. These resources depend on how far you've explored the storyline on the main island, so the gifts will be relevant both for beginners and advanced players.
Tap on the gift box button with sign "Free gifts" and the window with 2 options will open: "Receive code" and "Enter code".
If you have already had a code, tap on "Enter code". If not, tap on "Receive code". The game will automatically redirect to the latest post with a free gift on the Island Experiment official page on Facebook in your browser.
In the post, you will find a line with a sign "GIFT CODE for mobile players". Remember it (or write on any paper, for example) and type into the window that will open if you tap on "Enter code".
Hurray! A gift is obtained!
