When someone mentions us on social media, most of us see this as a great form of engagement. Someone actually took the time to mention us (@mention), they must want to engage with us, right?

Then comes the big question: What do I do? Should I acknowledge, respond, thank the user, ignore, open a discussion?

Although savoir-vivre says we should always respond to someone trying to talk to us, it is not always the best thing to do on social media. In fact, it really depends on what that user actually said when he mentioned your brand.
