When I'm showing pictures from a trip to friends, I prefer to display the picture on my FullHD 50" TV rather than pass around small prints. In some cases, the picture contains multiple subjects and many interesting details, so I switch to 100% magnification and show specific parts which include details I consider worth focusing on.

I wouldn't call it pixel peeping. To me pixel peeping is examining an image at high magnification solely to determine sharpness and other flaws.  The term is often associated with camera gear collectors who obsessively focus on minute differences in image quality which are unobservable under the conditions which images are typically displayed.

If your images "contains multiple subjects and many interesting details" I wonder why you did not consider those aspects of the image worth their own photographs.  I would think that going from an overall photo to well composed photos of the interesting bits would make for a far more pleasing presentation.
