    Sorry... I have no idea what to call this or how to change it.

    When I share a blog post on Facebook this description comes up... my client wants to change it.

    Screen grab with the area circled.

    I can't view the link right now, but I believe you're referring to the meta description.

    Here's a link to info:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Meta_Tags_in_WordPress

    "In the default installation, WordPress does not include meta tags such as description and keywords."

    You can add them to the header.php template file in your WordPress Theme (see the link above for details), or you can use a plugin. I use WordPress SEO by Yoast.
