We recommend using SNS for pushing alerts for failed jobs, especially alerts that are to be sent to humans, via say text message or email. SQS is good for sending messages to another application. They key difference between the two are that SNS will send the message, SQS needs to be polled to get the message so SQS has a slight time delay. Also with SQS once the message has been taken off the queue, it cannot then be picked up by someone else or another application whereas SNS is ideal for sending one message to multiple people.

You can send an email using SQS but it would require a lambda function.
