I want to overwrite the existing user profile that are in sp with my own one.

public string AccountName { get; set; }

public string WorkPhone { get; set; }

public string Department { get; set; }

public string Title { get; set; }

public string DistinguishedName { get; set; }

public string WorkEmail { get; set; }

public string Office { get; set; }

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        public void Create()

            string socialDataStatsSite = SPContext.Current.Site.Url;

            using (SPSite siteColl = new SPSite(socialDataStatsSite))

                SPServiceContext serviceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteColl);

                UserProfileManager userProfileManager = new UserProfileManager(serviceContext);

                UserProfile newProfile = userProfileManager.CreateUserProfile(AccountName, AccountName);
