Is it possible to set up auto-correct in Google Docs so that it will automatically change a word to a hyperlink to said word?

For example, I type:


What I want is for the word to then automatically convert to:


Where the word has now become the link.

How do I set this up in Google Docs?


It's partially possible.

While editing text document, select Preferences from the Tools drop-down menu. Add new entry to replace facebook with http://www.facebook.com.

After you type facebook and press space, the text will be replaced, but will not become hyperlink. But if you now type a space at the end of replaced text, it does change to hyperlink.
