Another Steam User Record

Just a week after setting a new Steam record of 10,761,566 players, the Steam Game and Player Statistics page shows that mark was obliterated over the weekend, when 11,625,415 users were logged in at once (thanks DSOGaming). The two most popular games listed are Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, each of which boasts more concurrent users than the rest of the top 10 combined.

I thought it was based off users actively playing a game, not just logged in but they don't really clarify it on that page.

Well, they call it Steam "users". You can use Steam in many ways other than gaming.
Also, if you add up the numbers from the 99 most played current games you end up at about 2 million players while there are ~8.7 million current users.
This would mean that an additional 6.x million people would have to be playing thousands of obscure games with less than 3K concurrent players (since 3K is what it takes to be in place no. 99).
Assuming an average of 2K players per game this means that there'd have to be 3,000+ more games with an average of 2K concurrent players.

So, yeah, it's definitely just users as in "logged in" as the news post also states correctly.
