How do I turn on notifications when someone posts on Facebook?

For a personal profile, when you visit the user’s page, you will see a few buttons up on their cover photo. One of them confirms that you’re friends with that person. If you hover over that button, one of the options will be “get notifications.” Click this and make sure it’s checked.
