Third World Countries?

"Third World" has been boggling my mind for a few months. I sought the reason behind this term but not yet able to have any qualified reasons. Is this a reality or just an ideology? What is the measuring scale of such stereotyping. Maybe it's a different socio-economic class or maybe it's their first time-around or maybe still baffled with cold war.

Don't we need to change this pocket-size political orientation?

Countries who claim to be 

 first world are in blue.
 second world are in red.
 third world are in green.
