Default Is Argentina considered a "third world" country?

Also, is it a country where a visitor (who definitely would not "blend") is safe to travel, of course, using common sense? What I mean is, when my parents have gone on cruises, sometimes when they pulled into a port, the passengers were told not to leave the resort area, that it was not safe to do so. Is Argentina like that, or more like here, where you can pretty much go anywhere, like I said using common sense (like not going into a ghetto type area)?
The reason I ask is that a friend of mine lives there, and she refers to her own country as "third world". She has asked me to go and visit her, but then she tells me stories of how "bad" it is, muggings, etc. And that it's really bad for anyone that the thugs think might have money, especially tourists. But she also tends to exagerate, so I was hoping to hear from people that actually visited there or live there to get another opinion.
and it is Buenos Aires that she lives in.

Third world means not developed,

not dangerous.

Though I've only visited Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata, I didn't find it 3rd-worldish at all. I was out late clubbing, walked all around the cities, and never felt scared. I wasn't even approached by any beggars or pushers. I read up on the places before going around and followed the advice of the Lonely Planet travel guide book for what to do, see, and where to go, stay, eat, and how to get around. There may be some bad neighborhoods, but I didn't see any.
