If a "close friend" posts on someone's wall (that isn't my friend) will I still get a notification?

No, but it may appear in wall – Tachyons Nov 16 '12 at 2:16

You will only be notified when a close friend interacts with their own timeline in the following ways:

  • They posting a status update
  • Post a photo
  • Checkin
  • Update their profile picture

You can turn on/off these notifications via the instructions here

No, you get notifications only when a close friend posts on their own wall.
