It'll be created automatically when the user first logs in, if you have
the right permissions on the profile share.  It is possible to set the
permissions/acls such that this doesn't allow users to read or interfere
with each other's profiles.

You only need to create it yourself if you want to preload it with some
data.  Is this what you need to do?
