How do you decide whether to allow employees that "BYOD" to use Dropbox and other cloud storage services?

We have a limited BYOD (Bring You Own Device) policy, and are just dipping our toes in the water at this point. One thing a friend who works in a larger company's IT department suggest that we implement immediately is to block cloud storage software services such as Dropbox as a step to prevent data loss. Is this standard procedure for business that allow BYOD, and is it really necessary?
