You may want to revise that number to a more realistic figure. There may be 5 million profiles registered, ever, but no more than about 1 million are in any way active. The rest was never used, since deleted, forgotten, are fakes or duplicates, etc.

"Though, it is not really clear in the stats whether these unique
visitors are account holders (i.e. they have logged in) or they have
just visited the homepage (or other public pages)"

I think it is obvious that they must include non-members. I would also expect a certain amount of under- and over-reporting, given that the same traveling person signing on from several locations would likely be counted as different people. But multiple access (host & guests) from the same computer might be counted as a single person.

Apparently someone has a lot of time to click on report buttons. Let's see how long they can keep it up, in all groups around the globe.

The example of the country group is inappropriate, but they are back-paddling with apologies and making places look more and more like groups. Some way to go still, though.
