Unable to add "my content" shapefile to ArcGIS Online map?

When creating a map, why can't I add a shapefile that's already a part of my organization's content?  Instead, I must "Add Layer from File" to add the shapefile.  I've tried sharing the shapefile with "Everyone" and/or my "Organization" but it does not show in the dialog below.

The online help ( http://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/reference/shapefiles.htm ) states at the very end "you must use the Add button in the map viewer."  But does not give additional details as to what data sources can be used.
