    Try clicking the Start button and right click on the area above 'Most Used" and click " Change account settings" Then browse for your picture, add it and save it.

    Go to Settings->Personalization-> Lockscreen and you can set it from there. Also, you might have to be using an MS Account for Login:

    Actually, the LS settings ask you which service you want to pull info from, and if you have the Facebook Tile version installed, you can choose that and it will use your FB info. It says "Choose an app to show detailed status" - and you can only use a social app tile version once you have installed any.

    I found out it's because I used "netplwiz" to bypass entering a password at startup
