1. A method performed by an electronic device, the method comprising:

  • transmitting, via a communication interface of the electronic device, a display request for a ranking list to a computer, the display request including identification information corresponding to a user who is a ranking confirmation target;

    controlling, by circuitry of the electronic device, the communication interface to receive, in response to the display request, a position in the ranking list of the user in relation to a display range of the ranking list from the computer, wherein the position is identified by the computer based on ranking data stored in the computer;

    displaying, by the circuitry, a pointer that corresponds to the position received by the communication interface;

    determining, by the circuitry, based on a user input at the electronic device, whether the display range is changed;

    determining, by the circuitry, when it is determined that the display range is changed, a direction of the pointer based on the changed display range and the position received by the communication interface;

    determining, by the circuitry, that a user input is received at the pointer displayed by the electronic device;

    controlling, by the circuitry, the communication interface to receive the ranking data including another user based on the user input received at the pointer; and

    display, by the circuitry, the display range of the ranking list including a rank of the another user based on the received ranking data.
