  Next, a mode in which a user who is not registered in the service is invited to the service by a user registered in the service and the service is used will be described with reference to the drawings. FIG. 4 is an example of a screen displayed on the display unit of the registered user terminal device 200A and the unregistered user terminal device 200C. In the following description, the components of the terminal device 200C are denoted by “C” after the reference numerals, but the functions of the components in the terminal device 200C are the same as those described for the terminal device 200A.

  FIG. 4A is an example of a message application screen displayed on the display unit 250 of the terminal device 200A. The user A of the terminal device 200A registers with the service and uses a message application provided by the service. FIG. 4A is an example of a screen for inviting another user to the “talk room” where the user A chats via a network among a plurality of members. As shown in the figure, the display unit 250 displays a list 510 of friends registered in the service and an address storage unit 222 of the user A, but a user list 520 not registered in the service. . The user A selects not only friends registered in the service but also unregistered users displayed in the user list 520, a user who wants to be invited to the service (who wants to chat), and sends it to the server 100. An invitation request can be sent. In the example of the figure, registered users “User B” and “User D” and unregistered user “User C” are selected as members of the talk room.

  FIG. 4B is a diagram illustrating a screen example of the display unit 250C of the terminal device 200C of the user C who is an unregistered user who has received the invitation message transmitted from the server 100 in response to the invitation request of the user A. . The invitation message is transmitted using a communication protocol that can use a telephone number as a destination, such as SMS (Short Message Service) or MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service). As shown in the figure, the message 530 is delivered from the user A using SMS to the display unit 250C of the user C. For example, "User A has invited you to talk room. Access the following URL, The URL of the talk room where an unregistered user can chat is displayed along with the message "Please enter passcode QW1U88 and participate."

  When the user C taps and selects the URL of the talk room described in the message 530, a passcode input message 540 is displayed on the display unit 250C of the user C as shown in FIG. When the user C wants to experience the service, he / she inputs the passcode described in the message 530 via the input receiving unit 240C and taps the “join room” button. In the example of FIG. 4, “QW1U88” is input. Then, the display unit 250C transitions to a chat screen (talk room) shown in FIG. The talk room shown in FIG. 4D is displayed by a web browser for unregistered users. As shown in the figure, the unregistered user can browse the chat with the registered user, and can input the message 550 via the input receiving unit 240C. Here, the phone number or address used for the invitation is used as the display name in the talk room of the user C who is an unregistered user. Alternatively, the user C may register his display name and display the display name in the talk room. In addition, in the case of a registered user, it changes for every user who is a talk room member. In other words, the display name varies depending on the relationship between the user of the portable terminal displaying the talk room and the talk room member. For example, when the user A and the user B are in a friend relationship and the name of the user A is registered as “Mr. A” in the address storage unit 222B of the user B's mobile terminal B, the user A and the user B are displayed on the mobile terminal B. In the talk room, the user A is displayed as “Mr. A”. If user A and user D are in a friendship and the name of user A is registered as “Mr. A” in address storage unit 222D of user D's mobile terminal D, the talk room displayed on mobile terminal D The user A is displayed as “Mr. A”. If not registered, the display name set by the user A is displayed.

  The history of the chat performed in the talk room as shown in the figure is stored in the history storage unit 122 of the server 100. The chat history includes information such as the content of the message and the sender of the message, the date and time of transmission of the message, and a stamp transmitted from a registered user (not shown) (not shown). The storage of the chat history may be performed by saving a text log of chat contents, HTML (HyperText Markup Language) of a talk room screen display, and the like. Further, it may be stored in a data format dedicated to the message application. Then, when the user C newly registers with the service, the chat history that is stored in the history storage unit 122 and is performed when the user C is not registered is pulled. That is, the user C can continue browsing the chat history performed when the service is not registered, or can continue chatting with the talk room member. The registered user may have the chat history stored in the storage unit of his / her terminal device.

  As described above, according to an embodiment of the present invention, the contents of a service can be experienced even if the user is not registered with the service, and the user can be prompted to register with the service. Furthermore, since the contents of the service used when not registered can be used continuously after registration, it is highly convenient for the user.

  When an unregistered user selects a URL described in the invitation message and accesses a talk room that is a website, a cookie is given to the terminal device 200C of the unregistered user as user identification information. Also good. At that time, the history storage unit 122 of the server 100 stores the invitation message (URL) transmitted to the unregistered user and the assigned user identification information (cookie) in association with each other. The acquisition unit 133 of the server 100 acquires a cookie given to the terminal device 200C when an unregistered user accesses the talk room after the first time, and the service providing unit 131 stores a history of the users who accessed the URL. The talk room is displayed only for the user associated with the cookie stored in the unit 122.

  As described above, the user identification information and the URL of the talk room are stored in association with each other, and the talk room is displayed only to the user having the user identification information associated with the URL. For example, the URL does not receive the invitation message. Even if leaked to the user, unauthorized access by a user who has not been invited can be prevented.

  The contents of services that can be enjoyed by unregistered users in the talk room may be limited as compared to registered users. For example, a registered user can use a preset stamp (digital sticker) in addition to a text message in a message to be transmitted during a chat. There are various types of stamps (illustrations and animations) that can represent the user's feelings, and the registered user can also send only the stamp without using text. However, in the talk room where an unregistered user chats, the service providing unit 131 can browse the stamp transmitted by the registered user to the unregistered user, but may not use the stamp. In addition to the stamp, audio data, moving images, images, and the like may be contents that can be used only by registered users.

  Thus, according to an embodiment of the present invention, unregistered users are not allowed to use a part of content that can only be used by registered users, so that registration of unregistered users to the service can be promoted.

  The invitation message includes information about one or more registered users who can exchange messages with unregistered users, and the service providing unit 131 is not included in this information (that is, in the talk room described in the URL). It is not necessary for unregistered users to exchange messages with registered users (not included in group members in chats). As described above, unregistered users can receive chat messages from registered users and can only chat by accessing the URL described in the invitation message, where they are invited by registered users. The talk room members have been decided. Therefore, an unregistered user cannot start a chat with a registered user who is not a member of the invited talk room.

  As described above, according to the embodiment of the present invention, since the unregistered user does not start a new chat with the registered user, the unregistered user can be prompted to register for the service.

  In addition, it is assumed that chat is performed between registered users set as friends in advance. When an unregistered user is registered in the service, a registered user who is estimated to be a friend of an unregistered user is designated as an unregistered user C. May be displayed on the display unit 250C. Here, there is a high possibility that the member of the talk room to which the unregistered user C is invited is a friend of the unregistered user C. Therefore, when the unregistered user C registers for the service, information for displaying the talk room member as a friend candidate on the display unit 250C may be transmitted from the transmission unit 112 of the server 100 to the terminal device 200C. .

  With such a configuration, it is possible to eliminate the trouble of an unregistered user searching for a friend after registering the service, and a highly convenient service can be provided.

  In the above description, the messaging service (chat) is described as an example of the service. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the service includes a call service that allows registered users to make a voice call using a communication line. It is. However, the service providing unit 131 does not have to make an unregistered user use the call service. Regarding the fact that the service is included in the content of the service, for example, as shown in FIG. 4 (d), in a talk room displayed on a web browser by an unregistered user, “If you register, use stamp, free call Yes, you can take over this conversation. "You may be informed by displaying a message prompting you to register for the service.

  As described above, according to an embodiment of the present invention, only registered users can use the call service, so that unregistered users can be prompted to register for the service.

  In the above description, a mode in which a communication protocol with a telephone number such as SMS is used for sending an invitation message has been described. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the address storage unit 222 of the registered user is used. An invitation message may be sent to the stored mail address. When the communication protocol destined for the above-described telephone number is used for sending the invitation message, the telephone number input procedure required for new registration with the service by an unregistered user may be omitted.

  As described above, according to an embodiment of the present invention, a procedure required when an unregistered user newly registers for a service is omitted, so that convenience for the user can be improved.

  Here, a service history of an unregistered user stored in the history storage unit 122 of the server 100 will be described. FIG. 5 is an example of a service history table of unregistered users stored in the history storage unit 122. As shown in the figure, the service history table 122TBL includes “user ID”, “terminal identification information”, “talk room URL”, “invitation message”, “passcode”, “user identification information”, “member”, and the like. included. Here, in the case of a registered user, the “user ID” is one of user accounts set by the service management side. Therefore, the “user ID” may be set for an unregistered user separately from the registered user by the service management side. The “terminal identification information” refers to information that can identify individual terminals, such as a device key that is an individual identification number of a mobile phone terminal and an SID (Security Identifier). In the example in the figure, the talk room specified by “https://guest.line.me/134343411” is associated with the user ID of the unregistered user “User_C”, and the access code is “QWU1U88”. . Further, a cookie “jLB ** 31” is given as user identification information. Further, the invitation message is transmitted by SMS, and the telephone number “090-xxxΔ □” is stored. Further, it is understood that the invited talk room members are “User_A, User_B, User_D”. It should be noted that the user ID and the like shown in the figure are examples and are not limited thereto. For example, the user ID may be a number.

  Next, the operation of the service system according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described using a flowchart. FIG. 6 is a flowchart showing processing of the terminal devices 200A and 200C and the server 100 when the user A (registered user) of the terminal device 200A invites the user C (unregistered user) of the terminal device 200C to the talk room. is there. In the figure, for simplicity, the terminal devices 200A and 200C are simply referred to as “terminal device A” and “terminal device C”.

  First, the invitation request of the user C is transmitted from the communication unit 210 of the terminal device 200A (step S11). The receiving unit 111 of the server 100 receives the invitation request, and the creating unit 132 creates an invitation message to the user C. Then, an invitation message is transmitted from the transmission unit 112 of the server 100 to the terminal device 200C (step S21). The user C of the terminal device 200C accesses the URL described in the invitation message displayed on the display unit 250C via the input receiving unit 240C (step S31). The acquisition unit 133 of the server 100 gives the user identification information (cookie) of the terminal device 200C and stores it in the history storage unit 122 (step S22). Next, the server 100 transmits a passcode input request from the transmission unit 112 to the terminal device 200C (step S23). At this time, a passcode input message 530 as shown in FIG. 4C is displayed on the display unit 250C of the terminal device 200C. The user C of the terminal device 200C inputs the passcode described in the invitation message via the input reception unit 240C and transmits it to the server 100 (step S32).

  The service providing unit 131 of the server 100 determines whether or not the passcode is correct based on the service history table 122TBL stored in the history storage unit 122 (step S24). If it is determined that the passcode is not correct, the server 100 rejects access from the terminal device 200C (step S25). At this time, for example, display information for displaying a message “passcode is different” on the display unit 250C of the terminal device 200C may be transmitted to the terminal device 200C.

  When it is determined in step S24 that the passcode is correct, the server 100 transmits display information for displaying a talk room with a web browser to the terminal device 200C of the user C who is an unregistered user, and the terminal device 200C User C chats in the talk room on the web browser (step S33). In addition, the server 100 transmits display information for displaying the content (message) of the chat to the terminal device 200A of the user A who is a registered user, and the user of the terminal device 200A chats with the application (step S12). ). The storage unit 120 of the server 100 stores a chat history between members including the user A and the user C (step S26).

  Next, processing when the user C who is an unregistered user accesses the talk room after the first time will be described with reference to a flowchart. FIG. 7 is a flowchart illustrating an example of processing of the server when the user C accesses the URL of the talk room. As shown in the figure, first, the user C accesses the URL of the talk room described in the invitation message (step T21). At this time, the user identification information (cookie) given from the server 100 is also transmitted. Upon receiving access to the URL, the server 100 transmits a passcode input request to the terminal device 200C. The user C of the terminal device 200C inputs a pass code via the input receiving unit 240C, and the input pass code is transmitted from the communication unit 210 to the server 100 (step T22). The service providing unit 131 of the server 100 determines whether or not the passcode is correct (step T12). If it is determined that the passcode is not correct, the server 100 rejects the user C's access to the talk room, and does not transmit the talk room display information to the terminal device 200C (step T13). At this time, for example, display information for displaying a message “passcode is different” on the display unit 250C of the terminal device 200C may be transmitted to the terminal device 200C.

  If it is determined in step T12 that the passcode is correct, the service providing unit 131 refers to the service history table 122TBL stored in the history storage unit 122 to determine whether the user identification information is correct ( Step T14). If it is determined that the user identification information is not correct, the server 100 rejects the user C's access to the talk room and does not transmit the talk room display information to the terminal device 200C (step T15). When it is determined in step T14 that the user identification information is correct, the service providing unit 131 of the server 100 transmits display information for displaying the talk room on the web browser from the transmission unit 122 to the terminal device 200C ( Step T16). The talk room is displayed on the display unit 250C of the terminal device 200C by the web browser, and the user C who is an unregistered user can also chat (step T23).

  Next, processing when user C, an unregistered user, registers with the service will be described. FIG. 8 is a flowchart illustrating an example of processing performed by the server when the user C registers with the service. First, a registration request for a service is transmitted from the terminal device 200C (step P21). This registration request is made, for example, by installing an application for receiving a service in the terminal device 200C and registering user information. When the server 100 receives the registration request, the server 100 determines whether or not the user C of the terminal device 200C is a restricted service user, that is, whether or not the user has used the service upon receiving an invitation when the user is an unregistered user. Determine (step P11). This is determined using, for example, a telephone number stored in the history storage unit 122. However, the information used to determine whether or not an unregistered user has been invited and used the service includes the mail address, user identification information, and terminal identification information stored in the history storage unit 122. Or a combination thereof.

  If it is determined in step P11 that the user C is a restricted service user, the service providing unit 131 determines whether an invitation message to the user C is transmitted by SMS (step P12). If it is determined in step P11 that the user C of the terminal device 200C is not a restricted service user, or if it is determined in step P12 that the invitation message to the user C is not transmitted by SMS, the terminal A request for inputting a telephone number necessary for registration is transmitted to apparatus 200C (step P13). The user C of the terminal device 200C receives the telephone number input request, inputs the telephone number, and transmits it to the server 100 (step P22).

  If the user C of the terminal device 200C is a user of a restricted service, the service is registered by the server 100 in step P14 and the history of using the service at the time of an unregistered user is taken over and the service is used. Is possible. If the user C of the terminal device 200C is not a user of the restricted service, the server 100 registers it as a service in step P15. Thereafter, the server 100 transmits information indicating that the registration has been completed to the terminal device 100C (step P16).

  Furthermore, according to an embodiment of the present invention, unregistered users are not allowed to use some services that can only be used by registered users. Moreover, an unregistered user cannot start a new chat with a registered user. Further, only registered users are allowed to use the call service. As a result, unregistered users can be prompted to register for the service.

  Furthermore, according to an embodiment of the present invention, when an invitation message for an unregistered user is transmitted using a communication protocol destined for a telephone number, a procedure required when the unregistered user newly registers with the service. Is omitted, the convenience of the user can be improved.

  Although one embodiment of the present invention has been described, it goes without saying that the present invention is not limited to this. For example, in the above description, a mode in which a cookie is used as user identification information has been described. However, as user identification information, user terminal identification information or terminal identification information conforming to a communication protocol (for example, WAP: Wireless Access Protocol) used for communication is used. It may be.

  In addition, there may be a restriction on the period of the talk room that can be browsed by unregistered users. For example, chat in a talk room may be performed only within two weeks after the invitation message is issued. With such a configuration, it is possible to call an unregistered user a registration request for a service. If an unregistered user subsequently registers for the service, the contents of the chat performed by other members during the period when the unregistered user was unable to view the content will be viewed by the unregistered user at that time, for example, by the sender of the invitation request It may be set whether or not to make it possible to browse without setting.

  Moreover, in the above-described embodiment, a description has been given of a mode in which a plurality of registered talk room members are invited (invited) by a registered user. However, the members of the talk room may be members of a group set in advance by registered users. The talk room may include a plurality of unregistered users. In this case, the URL of the talk room is the same for each unregistered user, but by making the combination of the access code and user identification information different for each unregistered user, Unauthorized access to the talk room by the user can be prevented.

  Further, the talk room used by the unregistered user may not be displayed on the web browser after the unregistered user registers with the service. For example, when an unregistered user clicks the URL of the talk room described in the invitation message after registration, the message application may be activated to display the talk room without making a transition to the web browser.

  The number of members in the talk room does not need to be plural, and a configuration in which a registered user who has transmitted an invitation request and a non-registered user can perform a one-to-one chat may be used. In this case, when an unregistered user registers with the service, the registered user who transmitted the invitation request may be automatically registered as a friend of the unregistered user.

  In the above description, the mode in which the user invited to the talk room is an unregistered user has been described. However, when chat is performed between registered users who are set as friends (with friends), if there is no friend relationship between users registered in the service, it will be selected as the other party to talk on the message app I can't. For example, in the case of FIG. 4A, the user J described in the address book of the user A is registered in the service (the message application is used), but the user J is not in a friend relationship with the user A. Therefore, it is not described in the friend list 510 as shown in the figure. According to the present invention, the user A can make an invitation request to the user J having such a relationship. That is, the user invited to the talk room may be a registered user. Since user J is registered in the service, there is no need to chat with user A in the talk room on the web browser, and a message prompting user A to add user J as a friend is displayed. By registering as a friend, you can chat on the message app. In this case, the user J can be identified from the telephone number, e-mail address, or the like used when the user J registers with the service, and information related to the user J can be displayed to the user A.

  Moreover, terminal device 100A-100C is not restricted to a smart phone.
