    As you can see in the image below of my pinned sites on the start screen the facebook and twitter sites have created a pinned tile for the website. Other sites don't have a tile developed for them. Is there a way I can edit the pinned website to display a custom tile that I choose? Where are these pinned sites located on my surface?

    I believe it's up to the website to have a favicon loaded in their root directory. I have several websites and have created a favicon for each, I even made special ones to appear on my iPad. Mine are all small and with the rise of the RT I'm thinking I need to resize them. I think unless you own the website and can load a favicon you are out of luck and just have to use what they have available.
