Can't your feelings on the matter just be enough? Sounds like they have thrown a hissy fit. Have they cut you off now or just from facebook?

They accept every request they get and have about 1000 friends?! That's pretty scary. I would guarantee they would have at least a few dodgy scammers on there in that case. There's a govt thing doing the rounds on my Facebook at the moment which is supposed to educate people on the dangers of photos on Facebook and of accepting random friend requests. Its creepquiz.eq.edu.au. Ask them to give it a go.
It really is risky for a number of reasons for them to accept random strangers. You may be able to get through to them with that at first and then they may come to realise the danger of sharing your kids photos with strangers.

I don't think you should need research to back up your point of view. Isn't it common sense not to put photos of children on a public site that could be accessed by complete strangers? I am extremely cautious with the photos I upload and my privacy settings are as high as possible.

Yikes. Your family really have no idea the unwelcome exposure and privacy violation they are subjecting your kids to.
I know of people who have had their profile pictures and private pictures used against their will by entities related to Facebook in advertising campaigns.
It is a breach of that child's privacy IMO. They haven't got the ability to consent..which is what parents are responsible for doing on their behalf.
This article contains some good references on this issue and may be of some assistance...

A bit of an FYI but I came off Facebook a month ago and don't regret it at all. I communicate with my friends either by phone, Skype or What's App and I've got my privacy back. I'm also more present in life. Might be worth giving it a go?

I have considered this but my problem with not being on Facebook is then you don't know what pictures other family/friends are posting which may have you or your kids in them.
Sorry OP, I'm no help with stats or references.

DH and I had this same discussing with MIL. She was continually reposting images - not just sharing, but actually downloading and reposting - for her half a million FB friends to see. We put a kibosh on that pretty quickly.
I always ask before putting up pictures of other people's kids.
