In this case, execution result screen displayed on the first display unit 113 of the first terminal 110 includes a content including payment-related card information, coupon-related information, and gift card-related information corresponding to the specific app, and identification data for identifying the content, and the content may include unique identification information on the first terminal 110. Herein, the identification information on the first terminal 110 includes an MDN, a mobile IP, a mobile MAC, a Sim card unique information, and serial number of the first terminal 110.

As an example, when a specific app such as an electronic wallet app pre-installed in the first terminal 110 is executed, the first terminal 110 displays an execution result screen. Herein, the specific app execution result screen includes a my-wallet menu, an add menu, an event/news menu, a more-view menu, and the like. In this case, a corresponding menu includes a content including payment-related card information, coupon-related information, gift card-related information, and identification data for identifying the content, and the content includes identification information on the first terminal 110 (S610).

Then, if a predetermined share button displayed on a partial region of the content included in the execution result screen displayed on the first terminal 110 is selected, the first terminal 110 transmits, to the service providing device 120, identification data for identifying the content corresponding to the selected share button.

As an example, when a share button displayed on a partial region of the content including coupon information displayed on the first terminal 110 is selected, the first terminal 110 transmits, to the service providing device 120, identification data (for example, identification number=no7) on the coupon information corresponding to the selected share button (S620).

Then, the service providing device 120 receives identification data for identifying a content transmitted from the first terminal 110.

Further, the service providing device 120 verifies a content corresponding to the received identification data among the plurality of previously stored contents (each including unique identification data). Herein, the content verified by the service providing device 120 includes the same content as the content displayed on the first terminal 110. Although the content displayed on the first terminal 110 includes identification information on the first terminal 110, the content verified by the service providing device 120 (or the plurality of contents previously stored in the service providing device 120) does not include identification information on a terminal (for example, identification information on the first terminal 110).

As an example, the service providing device 120 verifies a content corresponding to the identification data (for example, identification number=no7) transmitted from the first terminal 110 among the plurality of previously stored contents and unique identification data respectively corresponding to the contents (S630).

Then, the service providing device 120 verifies access address information for accessing the verified content (or access address information at which the verified content is stored/access address information of the service providing device 120 in which the verified content is stored).

Further, the service providing device 120 transmits, to the first terminal 110, the verified access address information for accessing the corresponding content.

As an example, the service providing device 120 verifies access address information (including, for example, URL information) at which the verified content is stored in the service providing device 120, and transmits the verified access address information to the first terminal 110 (S640).

Then, the first terminal receives access address information for accessing a content corresponding to the identification data transmitted from the service providing device 120 in response to the transmitted identification data.

Further, the first terminal 110 accesses a predetermined SNS server (not illustrated) corresponding to the first terminal 110 or accesses the SNS server through an SNS-related menu interworking with the specific app.

Further, the first terminal 110 links (or uploads) the received access address information to a corresponding SNS account.

As an example, the first terminal 110 accesses the SNS server to which the first terminal 110 subscribes through the SNS-related menu interworking with the specific app and links access address information (including, for example, URL information) for accessing the received content to the SNS account of the first terminal 110 (S650).

Then, the access address information linked to the SNS account of the first terminal 110 of the SNS server is selected (or clicked) by the second terminal 130, the second terminal 130 accesses the service providing device 120 corresponding to the access address information.

Further, the second terminal 130 receives a content corresponding to the access address information transmitted from the service providing device 120 and displays the received content.

In this case, when the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 may provide the content to the second terminal 130 by any one of the following three methods.

Firstly, the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130 regardless of whether or not the specific app provided by the service providing device 120 is installed. Then, the second terminal 130 displays the content through the web browser or the like installed in the second terminal 130.

Secondly, the service providing device 120 checks whether or not the specific app provided by the service providing device 120 is installed on the basis of the identification information on the second terminal 130 accessing the service providing device 120, and if the specific app is installed in the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130 and the second terminal 130 displays the content through the specific app. Further, if the specific app is not installed in the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 induces the second terminal 130 to install the specific app and then, after the specific app is installed in the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130, and the second terminal 130 displays the content after the specific app is installed.

Thirdly, the service providing device 120 may check a kind of the second terminal 130 accessing the service providing device 120. That is, the service providing device 120 checks whether the second terminal 130 is a fixed terminal or a mobile terminal. Further, if the second terminal 130 is a fixed terminal, the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130 regardless of whether or not the specific app is installed. Then, the second terminal 130 displays the content through the web browser or the like installed in the second terminal 130. Further, if the second terminal 130 is a mobile terminal, the service providing device 120 checks whether or not the specific app provided by the service providing device 120 is installed on the basis of the identification information on the second terminal 130 accessing the service providing device 120. If the specific app is not installed in the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 induces the second terminal 130 to install the specific app and then, after the specific app is installed in the second terminal 130, the service providing device 120 transmits the content corresponding to the access address information to the second terminal 130, and the second terminal 130 displays the content after the specific app is installed.
